Many people make the decision to get a tattoo in memory of a lost loved one. If you are thinking about a memorial tattoo, there’s a good chance that you may also have an idea of what would be a meaningful option. Here are some memorial tattoo ideas to take into consideration.
Cross or Rosary Tattoos
A cross or rosary can be an ideal memorial tattoo for the right individual. If you are religious or the person who you have lost was religious, this may be an ideal tattoo option. Incorporating the person’s name or date of death is also ideal if you choose to opt for a religious symbol. Of course, religious tattoos are not necessarily the right choice for everyone.
Angel Memorial Tattoo Idea
If you are considering a memorial tattoo idea, an angel can be an ideal option. After all, your lost loved one is an angel who is now looking over you. You may choose to incorporate the person’s face or simply choose another angel tattoo design. Incorporating Rest in Peace, the date of death and person’s name in the tattoo design can also be ideal.
Favorite Flower or Animal Tattoo
Did your lost loved one have a favorite flower or animal? If so, one of these can be a great choice for a memorial tattoo. Be sure to incorporate their favorite colors into the tattoo, if possible. While you do not necessarily need to add the person’s name and date of death, it can make a great addition to this memorial tattoo.
Star Memorial Tattoo Idea
Stars can make beautiful memorial tattoos. If you felt that person was your shining star, this can be a great option to consider. A unique memorial tattoo idea that you can use for all of your loved ones is to get a star for each person that you have lost. The stars may be similar or they may have different qualities – such as each person’s favorite color or pattern.
There are many different memorial tattoos to consider. It is likely that you will be able to find a tattoo that signifies your lost loved one, perhaps all on your own. Consider favorite memories, the person’s interests (e.g. a music note if they were a good singer, sunglasses if they loved the beach) or anything else that would relate to them. If your lost loved one absolutely hated the idea of you having tattoos, you might even want to consider other memorial options.
