Cancer Ribbon Memorial Tattoo

Today a woman who lost her sister to stomach cancer came in to have a memorial ribbon placed on her wrist, where she will see it every day and it will serve to keep her sister's memory alive. Last month we had used something her sister had written to pull the letters in her handwriting to construct the text "Calm" on her wrist. Today we added the ribbon like a charm on a bracelet. In this instance the tattoos fulfill an ancient purpose, marks upon the flesh to memorialize the dead.
