    story goes... lost 2 brothers within the past 3 years...
    everyone in the fam is slowly getting something done, started with my mom then onto a few of his friends.

    what better inspiration for a tat i figure.


    just shy of ideas...
    anyone?


    something "eternity" themed, with possible names and or dates incoporated.

    When you think of them what is the one thing that comes to mind. If they really liked something or they had a nickname. Personally i think that is a good way to remember them.

    the one i was closest too had mutiple celtic tattoo's

    he had a nickname yea, but was never the nickname to me, but rather to his friends... 3 of his friends got matching tat's becuz of this.

    hmm....

    What reminds you of them?
    Any one thing that reminds you of both?
    How about a really fond memory that sticks out in your mind that included all of you?

    hard to say... we always fought growing up.. typical middle child syndrome (me) but never carried on past highschool.

    he shortly moved away career wise, and kept in touchj every christmas and phone calls. never at each others neck, but not alot of time to truly bond as friends AND brothers you know? :sad2:

    the second... we were best friends, but only started hanging out 3 years ago. partyied alot together, alot of good times. worked together for some time as well..

    a memory that stands out ill have to think of.

    What was his job that kept him away?
    For Christmas, did you ever get a really amazing gift?

    I know how you feel. I lost my brother to suicide, and we never really spent much time bonding. I ended up getting a tattoo of the same thing my brother had a tattoo of. I even had my artist mix some of his ashes into the ink.

    get something that he each of them liked (ie. a image etc...) and then the date around (top/bottom) or how ever you like it..

    my buddy has a tat (oh his calf) for a close friend who passed , its betty boop, and the date is on the bottom.. then on the 10 year anny of his death, he got another betty boop tatty on the other calf, and wrote "10 years later" on the top.. and "still missin you" on the bottom..

    black roses symbolize death and farewell, plus the cross it forms to me.. is a symbol of eternity

    I think that would look awesome as long as the rose was done well.
