Take a look at some of the tattoos that have special meanings and stories behind them. Try not to cry!

1) 18th Birthday Gift

“I got this 3 days after my 18th birthday, It’s my grandfather who died when I was 7 holding up the world in his WWII uniform.”
What a powerful tattoo to commemorate a loved one.

2) First Tattoo

At just 15-years-old, her friend committed suicide. She decided to get the last note her friend wrote her as her first tattoo. Her friend called her Bacon because that was the only word she was able to learn in their sign language class.
What a sweet memory of her friend.

3) For my Brother
