Remembering our little angel

For some time now, I've been thinking about getting a memorial tattoo for Olivia. B got Olivia's name in Japanese characters on his back a few months after she passed.  When Noah was born, B decided to get a tattoo of his footprints on his shoulder.  I decided to use this as an opportunity to do something.  I decided to cover up a small whale tattoo I got when I was 15 (not a well thought out decision!) with a forget-me-not flower and her footprint. I'm really happy with the final result:

Now I have a permanent and daily reminder of our little angel.  And someday we will tell Noah about his big sister watching over him from heaven.


  1. Beautiful tattoo! I love it. I love looking at the tattoo I got for Jacob and I've never regretted it.

  2. Lovely! What a beautiful way to remember Olivia!

  3. I was just googling tattoo idea's and I came across your picture and went to your blog. My husband and I just lost a baby at 22 weeks due to amniotic band syndrome on May 1st.. We named him David. Thank you for posting this.
