Mom didn't chicken out on her quest to get a tattoo and had it done 2 weeks ago. She started to source for a design online and when she first saw the pic, it just felt 'right' hence she ended up choosing the pic of 2 cherubs to represent Lucas and Chloe. It's on her lower back near the hip area and surprisingly, she claimed that it wasn't painful at all, just a little 'ticklish' and for next 2-3 days after that, there was a bruised feeling.

Dad was so inspired after mom had it done and he liked the design so much that he too went to do it the following week!! His tattoo is on his shoulder/ back area... now dad's got 2 angels on his shoulder! He also added the words 'Budded on Earth to Bloom in Heaven' beneath the cherubs (which mom also added eventually).

This pic on the right was taken right after the tatto was done, so it looks a little red and puffy.

Now dad and mom have matching tattoos and they are loving it totally. Although Lucas and Chloe will always be in their hearts and on their minds, now they have something 'tangible' to look at whenever they think of them or miss them.

Pretty pretty!! Lovely angels~~

Lucas & Chloe will be happy to see them too.

Though we've not met b4, but we have the 2 little angels in our minds as well~ =))

Coolest tattoo ever! It made me cry! You are the coolest for suffering through that. Now you carry them around with you everywhere you go so tospeak. That makes my day that you would share that with us.
Now your comment "RIP couch cushion" cracked me up. I should have put that as my post title. So clever!

that's a nice tattoo. My HC was contemplating to get one done for the longest time.....

Sam said...

I don't know who Lucas and Chloe are, but that sure is a nice tribute to them. I especially like the words.

icelads said...

I like the idea of tattooing and make them (for those we missed and will never meet again until after life) part of our body! it touched my heart! thank you.

Chow Chow said...

OMD, that is the coolest pair of tattoos! Your pawrents' pain threshold must be really high! My mummy wanted a tattoo at the back of her neck for the longest time but she is just too chicken to get one.

It's a great and very sweet thing to have both angels as part of your pawrents' bodies now. I heard Tattooing can be addictive, so who knows, your pawrents might just add 'H&H' to their collection....

Love ya lots

Huskee and Hershey....
I was so very touched by your parents tattoos honoring their sweet angels. I've seen a lot of tattoos in my life. These are the only ones I've ever seen that REALLY make sense and the phrase added underneath is lovely. I compliment your parents.

My mom loves the tattoos. She got a tattoo last year after her nephew's wife died in the motorcycle accident. She doesn't really show it much but maybe she'll email a picture to your mom. She has a blue peace dove with flowers and the words "Always In My Heart". Her nephew's wife was just a year older than my mom and they had been friends & family since they were 19. I think a tatoo is a great way to hold special people close.

The tattoos are wonderful!!!!! Mom says they are the best tattoos she's ever seen in her entire life!!!!!!!
