Memorial tattoos are worn to pay tribute, plain and simple. These tattoos are permanent markers that function as outstanding visual reminders of our loss and bereavement. For many individuals, sporting a memorial tattoo is a way to grieve and hold them with you forever. Memorial Tattoos can contain some or all these components: birth and death dates, portraits, zodiac signs, white or red roses, birthstones, stars and favorite things or creatures of the deceased . Occasionally angelic beings like cherubs are often featured in these tats. 

Portraits are an excellent way to embrace those nearest to us and pay our respects.

Portrait memorial tattoos are mostly in black and gray to truly capture the essence of the picture. A lot of memorial tattoos feature a cross or some sort of scripture or quote that was meaningful, both to the wearer as well as the one being commemorated. Port City Tattoo are experts at creating visually stunning and realistic memorial tattoos. Our portrait work is world-class and our talented tattoo artists love nothing more than to create art that helps someone feel at peace.
