So sorry to hear of your loss @catemer so sad.
My baby girl Lily was born sleeping at 16 weeks 😞 1 month ago now.
I was thinking of doing the exact same thing for her. I've been googling pics as well.
All while doing the IVF cycle I listened to their music. The song Pale Blue Dot lyrics we had planned to put on her cards.
" Yeah the arrival was survival positivity was the power
We cracked the concrete to deliver you those flowers
And now that day has wings and can run on air
With a hope that if we spoke there was someone there.
Instead we had on the order of funeral service
Her name the date " and now that day has wings and can run on air"
I'm thinking of this being tattooed on the side or top of my foot.
And with some wings ?
Thank you for sharing ladies all sounds lovely and so special for your darling babies.

I don't have any tattoo advice but I couldn't read this and not reply. @catemer I'm so devastated for you and DP that your much wanted miracle baby is now an angel. I remember what you went through to get this far and was so thrilled to see you had finally gotten your BFP. I can't understand how such cruel losses happen to people who have fought so hard to be parents. It's so unfair and I'm so sorry your time of joy has been stolen from you.
The tattoo is a beautiful idea and I hope you find the perfect design in memory of your precious Elouise xo

Those words sound so special and a perfect tribute to you precious angel.
I had actually stumbled across your previous post re the loss of your Lilly. Reading it brought tears to my eyes.
Thanks you for sharing and for being strong enough to be posting here.

Hi catemer, I'm so terribly sorry you lost your beautiful Elouise. I hope you're getting lots of love from those around you.
I lost my son Lewis this year in May, at 38 weeks. I got a tattoo in his memory on my inner arm, about half way between my wrist and elbow. I love that spot because I can see it all the time and touch it, and it's also a prominent spot. It's like my own way of declaring, now that life in a way has 'got back to normal' (i.e. being back at work, doing all the normal day to day stuff again), that remember world I'm still a mother, I still have a beautiful son, even if life is not how I expected it to be, and I don't get the privilege of raising him and seeing him grow up. When people ask what the tattoo means I love telling them - not to get sympathy, I'm a proud loving mum like any other. For his tattoo, I got the letter L in a simple type, inside a pentagon shape. This shape is meaningful to me, because when I was pregnant, I spent hours making him a quilt that featured that particular shape. My mother in law had also spent a lot of time making him a quilt in hexagon shapes, which is really similar to my pentagon shape. To me this symbolises the love me and my family had for Lewis even before he was born - the time, love and excitement that went into preparing for his arrival.
Other members of my family are now going to get a similar tattoo, which I love - not that we would ever forget Lewis, but I feel it will really help to keep his memory alive in years to come.
Thank you so much for starting this thread, it's wonderful to be able to hear what other parents have done in memory of their precious babies.

I agree sim0, I got Violet on my wrist because it is prominent, I can always see her name, and people ask about her and keep her memory alive 💖👼
