i want to get a tattoo of my daughters name, but hidden in a tattoo…ive seen many tattoos, for example a tribal tattoo that looks like someones favorite animal, but a word “inside” the tattoo…im not sure if i was just initials or the whole name…any ideas?

Name: Onyx Dawn Loyd

i dont want anything extreme or flashy…please…

Hi

It really depends on how big you wish to go with the tattoo. Obviously the larger the space the more detail and the longer the name you can fit into it.

There are a number of ways that your daughter’s name can be incorporated into a tattoo from having it placed within the shape of the tattoo (completely hidden) to having the initials put in as small detail such as initials on a pocket watch etc.

I have seen a number where the tattoo shape is formed from the name and a fave passage or poem, with the words creating the shape outline – birds and butterflies are a popular one for this.

What style did you have in mind?

Take Care

The only difference between a person with tattoos, and a person without is this. The person with tattoos does not care if you do not have any.

I am sorry for your loss! Was she old enough to establish likes and dislikes? MAybe she likes something in particular. Use that image and go from there.

I am so sorry! I wonder is some kind of numerology would make for a good rememberance tattoo. Or… I might wait until the hurt isn’t so new and raw.
Here are a couple of idea that you and an artist could discuss:
New Years Day
Garnet, the brthstone of January… perhaps a jewel
Carnation, the birth flower of January. Carnation is love, fascination, and distinction (per some website I found)
Characteristics of Capricorn : Stable, Trustworthy, Persistent, Ambitious & Patient (again, per some website i came accross) http://www.birthstones.org.uk/birth-month-flowers/january-birth-flower.htm
Good luck!
