A team of funeral directors launched a business which allows the family members to keep the tattooed skin of their beloved after they passed and displayed it as art.

Save My Ink Forever has served hundreds of customers in the USA since its launching last year, and it is seeing to extend its client base overseas.

Kyle Sherwood along with her father Mike and another friend, who is also a funeral embalmer has been running the business. According to the reports, the trio came up with the idea after a casual talk with their friends in the funeral business about post-death mementos.

Kyle told The Huffington Post UK

All of our tattoos have deep meaning-meaning enough to put it on ourselves for life to proudly display.

She added,

So we thought, well what happens when you die? These works of art that mean so much to the individual and the family are gone forever. They are either buried or cremated, never to be seen again.

The group can preserve tattoos as simple as hearts to ornate full back pieces and the cost to keep the tattoo vary depending on the size of the piece, but according to the reports the cost usually in the region of $1,000 (£795).
