Loved one's ashes used for tattoos

Posted: Updated:
Anchorage, Alaska (KWWL) -

A tattoo artist is creating tattoos using the ashes of loved ones.

For one mother in Alaska, it was the perfect way to remember her teenage daughter after she died in a car crash involving a drunk driver.

"Jordyn's ashes are in the black silhouette of the mother and daughter and since it's shaped like a heart it just, to me, means our eternal love," said Dayna Durr.

She says her daughter will always be with her spiritually, but this was a way to keep her physically close.
