Tattoos tell us a lot about a person because it’s not an easy feat to bear the pain of the needle. What people choose to etch permanently on their skin shows us exactly what they love. Having special memories of your beloved woven through your skin with ink says so much more about the bond you have than just carrying a photo in your wallet. They make a great topic to begin a conversation with too.

We at Enlighten feel that tattooing our best memories says a lot about people’s relationships and we think that you would appreciate these kinds of tattoos.
