Memorial Tattoos.

When Kael passed away Layne's brother took him to get a memorial tattoo, Layne decided to get Kaels foot prints and his name and birth/death dates in his honor. When he got home that night I was in love!! I decided that I wanted to do the same with all my boys excluding the birth/death dates. A few months after Layne got his I got Caxton's, Stefon's and Kael's. When Landon came along we decided we needed to finish them off!! It took a few months but we've finally did it. Layne also has his zodiac signs and all the kids on his one arm and on the other arm he has all the boys names and their birthdays so on Saturday we went and got them all finished up!! I decided I wanted one where I could always see it in remembrance of Kael so on my wrist I got his initials plus a blue star on each side as he is my shining star in heaven and blue reminds me of him. These tattoos mean a lot to us and are a reminder to not just us but to the world we have 4 boys not just the 3 on earth here with us. I love each of my boys with my whole heart and now I have a little piece of each of them always with me. The artist is so amazing he took their feet right off of their birth certificate and turned them into tattoos for us! I am so grateful to him!! I love you boys each and everyone of you to the stars the moon and back!! Love always mommy!!

Let me just start by saying that I'm so sorry for your loss. Your little angel is adorable. Thank you so much for posting these pictures. I love the footprint idea. We lost our little angel on Monday and I've never had a tatoo but I want to get something to remember my little Kaylee.

I happened to stumble across your tattoo pictures when searching for memorial tattoos. I'm so sorry to hear of your loss, no parent should have to endure this pain.
What a fantastic idea to commemorate your boys. I think I'll be doing something similar as we just lost our second son, Jesse, on 10-8-11.
Thank you so much for the idea.
Take care,

I am getting a memorial for my 6month old daughter Jada who passed suddenly. This story inspires me.

Thank You for sharing
