Opinions On A In Memory Tattoo For My Angel Baby VictoriaLynn13 16 kids; Crawfordville, Florida 6 posts

I have been struggling with how to cope with my abortion, and a couple days ago I had an idea. What about a small tattoo in memory of my angel baby. I was wondering if any one else has done this or considered doing this? Does anyone think its a good idea?



I have 3 ideas just in case anyone is wondering what exactly I want I have a few ideas all are on my lower calf, and rather small. First is a small cross with a banner under it with my due date I want it all in black and white. Another idea was to get a small rose tattooed with 3 rose petal falling off one with the name me and my fiancee chose for a girl, one with the name we chose for a boy, and the last petal to have my due date I want this one in color. Another idea was to get a pair of angel wings with my due date in a banner below it this one I would want in black and white. Does anyone have another idea of what may be pretty?

Its not something I would personally do, but if you feel this would help you have peace with your decision, do it.

I can't say much since this is in AS but I don't know why anyone would get a tattoo in memory of an abortion. I guess if it helps you cope better, then by all means. I wish you luck.

Well it would all depend. You don't have to say it in here and i'm just curious. You can tell me to mind my own business if you want..Why did you have the abortion? The reason I am asking because some pics are symbolic of the reason for the tattoo if you get me. So if you would like you can message me the reason and I can help you decide. They all sound like good ideas but if I knew the reason I could help you choose or even elaborate on the ideas you have.

I agree.



If it helps you cope then go for it. I would like to give a little advice though. Having the tattoo is going to bring questions for the rest of your life. Just think about if that is something you can handle, you know being asked about it daily.



Good luck though hon.

I am stick in the same boat on deciding on a tattoo for my angel baby that I aborted. I was molested by a cousin from the time I was 9 till I was 15 and found out shortly that I was pregnant by him. I wanted to keep the baby, but my parents had their own thoughts on it and they let me know how they felt about it. I terminated my pregnancy at 19 weeks. I have been wanting a tattoo in memory of it for about 3 years just haven't figured out what I want yet.
