Screw looking at photos and sharing stories, there’s a new way to remember your loved ones after they pass. You can now pay a company to cut off someone’s tattooed flesh after they die, dry it and mount it in a frame for you to hang on a wall.
Save My Ink offers to cut pieces of skin from dead people and preserve them. Charles Hamm launched service last month and has already done 21 tattoos.
He uses a chemical and enzymatic process to stop the tissue from decaying
He says that a lot of tattoos have deep meaning and leaving them to relatives is ‘just like leaving a house or a wedding ring’
You might not want EVERY tattoo to be permanently framed, though…
