As a tattoo lover I must be honest and say your idea does not sound like it does honor to your cousin. I’m probably just misreading your wording, so forgive me if this comes across as offensive, but it almost sounds like you’re looking for an excuse to get a creepy (for lack of a better word) looking tattoo and just incorporating a few elements of your cousin’s death to justify it. I’m not hating on that style of ink, my husband has multiple tattoos of skulls and evil clowns and such, it’s just that for a memorial tattoo it seems a tad obnoxious. Just an outsider’s opinion, that’s all. If it suits you and you think your cousin would approve of it representing her by all means go for it!

@AndysCraftsNmore:  I would suggest having the Barbie, either full or just from the belly up, “punked out”, holding a realistic looking heart, and wearing the shirt that says DL. I think that sums up all the sentimentality while still being in good taste. You should avoid the skeleton, and here’s why – you say now that you’re not girly but you may feel differently as you get older. I’m telling you this from 100% honest true to life personal experience. When I was younger I got a bunch of tattoos (I’d go like every couple of months between age 18 and 23) that I thought were “badass”. Now when I look in the mirror I regret it so much because to me they just look butch. If I could erase my skin i’d totally go back and get more tattoos, but they’d be completely different.

@AndysCraftsNmore:  I think it’s more important for you to see it correctly. You should be able to look down at your arm all the time and think of her and your fun memories together. You can get really good suggestions from the guys at Living Arts in New Hope, PA. Not too far from Hamilton. They do great work and have fixed some of my messed up ones that were done at other places. I’ve never had a bad experience there.

@AndysCraftsNmore:  Why don’t you get a day-of-the-dead/ or zombie inspired barbie holding an anatomically correct heart?

@AndysCraftsNmore:  No offense but your idea is not good and will not translate well into a tattoo. Why not a day of the dead or sugar skull tattoo to honor the life of a deceased family member or friend? I have one and everyone comments on how beautiful it is no matter how “creepy” it is.
