Tattoo art commemorates many special occasions of life. It is a permanent reminder of whatever is important to us, and preserves the memory through a beautiful design. Tattoo art also cherishes the memory of someone special. It may be a loved aunt, a friend, a husband, or a child whose memory is celebrated in a tattoo. You find certain things that are common in loving memory tattoos. The name of the person and their time period on earth, are inked in the tattoo design.
Tattoos inked in memory of someone, use various elements in the design. Often, the design shows a basic Cross with the person’s name. You also find elaborate Cross designs in the memorial tattoos. Celtic knots, traditional woven patterns, or realistic wooden shades decorate the Cross. Clouds are commonly used to indicate that the person has gone up to the heavens. You also find gorgeous designs with angel wings. Delicately shaded wings in a ‘V’ pattern make a beautiful frame for the person’s name and time period on earth. You also see memorial tattoos that artistically depict the name of the person. Elaborate spirals and loops used in the design make the name itself a piece of art.
