I was reading the news and came across an article in the Huffington Post about leaving your tattoo to your loved ones after you die. Yes, you read that right. Quote: “NAPSA — the National Association for the Preservation of Skin Art — launched earlier this month with the aim of helping you pass down your tattoos to your kids, grandkids, and loved ones. It’s no longer a morbid dream. You can have your tattoos removed, preserved and turned into fine art.”
It goes on to say that after you die they need to be notified within 18 hours and a kit is sent out to your loved ones with instructions on cutting out the tattoo (not sure if loved ones do this or funeral home)which must be sent back to NAPSA and after a few months they send back a frame of the preserved skin with tattoo.
So you pay for a kit which you use to cut up your dead loved one to remove part of their skin, send it away, then have it preserved and framed. Something to look at everyday. Not much surprises me anymore but this does. I can’t decided if it is hilarious or disgusting. I guess maybe both but to each their own.
I checked out the website. Its $175 but I think you need to reregister each year at a cost of $60. The only address I found was based in Ohio.
