Safe process and very experienced staff

World recognized experts in cremation ashes tattoos.

The true essence of a remembrance tattoo cannot be any higher than having a small part of that person with you till you too pass away.


The cremated ashes are brought in and we take small portion of it to put in the tattoo (we need about a tablespoon’s worth). We’ll then process the ashes with a molecular reduction process, Then treat them, sterilize them and remove the micro contaminants that are present in all cremation ashes. This makes sure that even though the ashes have been completely sterilized through the cremation process, the process will ensure we have a safe and sterile product to use. The amount used usually equates to about the tip of a tea spoons worth.

Then the standard tattoo process starts. Design application etc.

The difference comes with mixing the inks. Black has a much denser ash accepting pigmentation. Micro dispersed ink except the ashes best. If a thicker ink is used then the mix of the ink and the ashes is a lot more sporadic. The ashes are put in the ink , which is already prepared to match the molecular size of the processed ashes. 

The tattoo process continues to the end and that’s the only difference. We are very aware that the ink that is left in the pots, still has cremated ashes left in them. So after the tattoo we will put the tip of a tissue into the ink pot. Blood will always come to the top of an ink pot, so the tissue, will, using a wick motion pull any of the small amounts of your blood onto the tissue for safe duty of care disposal by us, everything else is disposed of except the ink caps. The ink that is mixed with the ashes is put on a tissue or a tissue of the clients choice for them to take with them.

The use of prepared inks for ashes tattoos also makes the healing process a lot easier and there is a minimum amount, ( if any ) of scabbing.

We hope this has given you a brief guide on the ashes tattoo process.

We have tattooed dog ashes into clients and horse ashes as well. (If you are going to get a four legged loved on tattooed into you, always make sure you tell the place where your animal is getting cremated and they will make sure that the particles of ashes are of an appropriate size for the tattooing process.)

Dog Ashes Tattoo

Having a Dog ashes tattoo has been in the headlines lately. Here at Bubblegum ink ®, it’s us that have been making the headlines.

We had the great honor to tattoo the ashes of Treo the Hero dog into Dave Heyhoe, his handler and super hero. An ultimate dog ashes tattoo memorial.

Here at Bubblegum ink, we have known Dave personally both as a client and as a good friend. He returned from combat, war beaten and found solace with Treo in his wife Rachel’s arms.

Treo, the black labrador, was awarded the highest honour medal for valour by the army for his exploits in Afghanistan, saving, with Dave, multiple lives.

He slowly fitted back into civvy Street and found the time and fortune to write a book about the exploits of him and Treo in war torn Afghanistan.

‘It’s all about Treo’, is a fantastic, brutally honest book, where you will be riding a wave of emotions.

The bond that Dave had with Treo was cellular, tighter than most families, so when he said that when the devastating day comes when Treo has to move on and protect people on the other side, then we would be honored to tattoo Treo’s ashes into him.

Treo and Dave were regular visitors to the shop and over time a great combo became good friends. So when Treo took ill, we re-approached the tattoo concept. It’s a hard discussion when you know that Treo passing would devastate Dave and family.

The Taliban tried everything conceivable to take out Dave and Treo, but old age holds a heavy hand and succeeded where the Taliban failed. Unfortunately Treo passed. Gutted. It’s with a heavy heart, I’ll keep writing. My dogs have played with Treo multiple times, whilst me and Dave have put the world to rights. If you’ve owned dogs then you’ll understand. There is bond so tight with your dog, where hearts are attached. Dave’s best friend has four legs and to see a good friend have no chance of stopping the inevitable is wrenching.

They both saved each other’s life’s as well as each other’s souls. To say I was honored to tattoo Dave was an understatement. We chose the place where Treo always was, both in play and in War. We got a print of Treo’s footprint from a copy Dave had given us and Dave brought the poem in.

The local paper came around on the day. A wooden box is just a wooden box. Until, it’s got the ashes of a recognized hero in, awarded the Dickens medal of honor for Valour. The start of the tattoo was a heavy time.

We infused the ashes with the tattoo ink using our unique technique and after 2 hrs, the tattoo was done. I actually believed Dave felt at ease for the first time since Treo passed. We did no more tattooing that day. Respect is an underwhelming emotion these days, but I have a great respect for Dave and Treo.

A good friend has shown the ultimate respect to his best friend.

Treo now has a dedicated statue in his honour placed in the war memorial gardens in Congleton, Cheshire. After fund raising enough to commission the bronze statue, Congleton council placed the memorial in pride of place in the gardens.

His Royal Highness Prince Charles came and helped Dave Heyhoe reveal the statue to the waiting public. He also highlighted, even to Prince Charles his memorial tattoo that had his dog's ashes.
