    Dear heidi,
    I am a doctoral student at Duke University. My professor, Lauren WInner, is writing an article on bereavement and bereavement art and practices, including tattoos, and she’d like to include an image of your tattoo in her article. The upcoming book will be called The Pulse of Death published by Mellen.

    Please email me if this is acceptable to you!

    Cynthia: Someone making money off of an image of my tattoo makes me very uncomfortable. Sorry, but the answer is no.

    Thanks for stopping by.

    I lost my baby on Dec 11th this year in the same way. I am also considering a tattoo.

    I am so sorry, honey. Blessings your way and good luck deciding on a tattoo. My only advice is to pick the BEST artist in town. One that is familiar with memorial tattoos.

    Thank you for sharing your journey. I lost a baby on March 15, 2012, and even before I stumbled upon your blog I had decided to get a tattoo to honor my angel Baby. My husband (bless his heart) is getting one to. we have settled on the Precious Feet, the pro-life symbol that is the same size as a ten-week unborn’s feet, as the baby was 10 weeks when we lost him (her?). I am adding angel wings to mine, my husband wants the date on his. I’m glad to know that this is not some morbid thing, that we are not alone in wanting to have a permanat reminder of our lost baby. Again, thank you for your honesty, candor, and for being willing to share. God Bless you.
