    I haven't posted in here yet but I just wanted to say that a tattoo could potentially be really helpful to your son in getting through his grief. Yes they are permanent and I guess some people regret them later but it's not like he's just rushing out and picking a random picture off the wall of the tattoo shop. I'm sure it would continue to hold a lot of meaning for him later in his life.

    I agree a tattoo could be beneficial. My dh's mum passed away suddenly last and he got a tattoo in memory of her. He told me the reason was because he was hurting so much and needed to release it, and for him the pain of getting a tattoo was therapeutic and helped him deal with the emotional pain. Instead of self harming as a release or bottling it up, he chose to release it in a different way. The tattoo also helped (and continues to help) him feel like he is still connected to his mum.

    This is just heartbreaking. There are so many victims in such a situation- many very long lasting and devestating.

    I think the tattoo idea is a positive step. I would also encourage some kind of rememberance project in the name of those who he lost. More so- something to focus on other than the pain and the hurt. Did any of his friends have strong passions? Helping those that need it? Etc etc

    All my love and prayers go out to you and your son. I hope he can come out the other side of this horrific tradgedy.

    Sorry yes, I did mean go with him to get a tattoo. That's something he'll remember and understand as he gets older - that you were there, you were part of it even if you didn't totally approve.

    Also, I have a particular tattoo that was very cathartic and I cried through the whole process (not from pain). It was great to have a friend with me to talk to.

    It's very clear that you want only what's best for your son. He's very lucky to have you :-)

    Both his friends volunteered at a homeless shelter.
