The true essence of a remembrance tattoo cannot be any higher than having a small part of that loved one 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. If a thicker ink is used then the mix of the ink and the ashes is a lot more sporadic. (Thats why we control the and create the tattoo ink as well, so we know for a fact that your loved one will Always be with you).  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.
