The memorial tattoo is either an exact representation of the object to be remembered, like a portrait, or else it’s a symbolic mark like a name, a date, or a zodiac sign or ‘kanji’ icon. It probably all started with the famous ‘heart’ tattoo with a ribbon banner through the middle bearing the word ‘Mom’. This was popular with servicemen who wanted to remember home and what they were fighting for. Angels and cherubs are often chosen to mark the death of a child. Here’s a list of other design elements often found in a memorial tattoo:

· birth and death dates
· zodiac signs
· portraits
· roses, red or white
· stars
· birthstones
· favoured objects of the deceased: an animal, or instrument for example
