There is a saying within the tattooing profession: Love lasts forever, but a tattoo lasts six months longer. In this age where most of us will not be remembered on tombstones we may find we live on in the form of a memorial tattoo on the arm or torso of a loved one. Having a tattoo made can not only ease the pain of bereavement but keep the memory of the deceased actively in the mind.
Dr Troyer will talk about the implications of marking a living body with representations of death and discuss current innovations in memorial tattooing, including the practice of mixing the cremated ashes of a loved one in the ink that will be used to create the tattoo, thus forming a physical as well as symbolic link to the deceased.
