Memorial Tattoos – Maudlin or Quaint [POLL]

Whitney Houston would have been 49 today.

So in commemorating the singer’s life, her daughter, Bobbi Kristina and the adopted son turned daughter’s boyfriend (too mondo bizarre for words) each got matching tattoos.

According to this:

Daughter Bobbi Kristina, 19, and brother-turned-boyfriend Nick Gordon visited Inksomnia Tattoo in Alpharetta, Ga., Wednesday night to get matching designs on their right wrists featuring the singer’s initials, a quartet of the beloved birds of peace and two small crosses.

“The doves have a spiritual connotation, flying free I suppose,” said Inksomnia owner Mike Cummings, who personally inked Kristina while another artist handled Gordon.

(Just as a sidebar….extremely weird to have an adopted son/brother turn boyfriend. Must be something in the air down there.

Second…another “reality TV show”? We’ve gone from “16 and Pregnant”, to “Snooki and Jwoww”; otherwise known at “35 and on Food Stamps”…to the “Bobbi Kristina and My Brother/Boyfriend.”)

And you don’t think the Apocalypse is coming yet…do you?

Grandma said it all the time, “….Ray, sta vennen’ o’ fin do’ mund’!
(trans: Ray, the world is coming to an end!)

Anyway, since I’ve either seen or heard of a number of people that choose to memorialize loved ones in ink…and it always struck me weird…I wonder if you think it’s either a great way to remember a loved one or maudlin?

Do you feel a “memorial” tattoo is a great way to remember a loved one, or maudlin?
