Ex-model has mum’s ashes turned into very special tattoo to ‘offer protection on the other side’ – Mirror.co.uk

Posted in Tattoo Designs on Sep 04, 2017

Grieving ex-model feels her late mum is looking out for her from ‘the other side’ after having her ashes turned into a tattoo .

Tracy Roberts wanted to have a permanent tribute to her beloved mum , Linda Porter, and so decided to add to her extensive tattoo collection with a new design.

And the poignant inking she chose is the Horus Eye symbol, which is an Egyptian god who is the protector of the other side.

The rocker got her first permanent inking when she still a teenager and now has designs covering most of her body.

Tracy who is still coming to terms with Lindas death earlier this year said: The most recent one is particularly special. I lost my mum but she is part of me now. I had her ashes tattooed into my skin, into a Horus Eye symbol, the Egyptian god who is the protector of the other side.

I have got full tattoos down my arm, my ribs, down the full right side of my body. Every tattoo I have got means something to me.

I had my first one at 17. I used to do modelling, so I had it on the inside of my lip, because it had to be somewhere that it wouldnt show. It hurt a lot I felt like I had gone 10 rounds with Mike Tyson.

Her son Jack Potter, aged 12, said: I like my mums tattoos, but I think she has got enough now.

Tracy and jack, from Bucknall, in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, was one of the visitors to the Staffordshire Tattoo Gathering held at the Kings Hall in Stoke over the weekend.

The event showcased the work of 27 tattoo artists, specialising in a variety of different styles, and also featured live music, a custom car show with American hotrods and lowriders, a bench press competition, exotic animals, and Star Wars characters including Storm Troopers and Darth Vader.

It also gave like-minded people the chance to mix together and show off their tattoos.

Warehouse operative John Fenton has his entire body covered in tattoos, including his head.

The 61-year-old, of Bentilee, told the Stoke Sentinel : I had my first tattoo in 1972. My brother was 10 years older than me, and he influenced me to get one. My first tattoo was a dagger, but it has been covered up since then.

I have got a full body sleeve, my tattoos go over my arms, my legs and my body. Having my ribs tattooed was the most painful. That was also the longest session I had, it took eight hours.

People used to stop and stare when I was walking down the street but so many people have got tattoos these days that no-one bothers anymore.

Joel Kirkham, of Silverdale, had a new tattoo added to his back at the gathering, which was done by Leek tattoo artist Hollie May.

The 28-year-old, who works as a hotel night porter, said: The tattoo is part of my life story. I wanted a Stoke-on-Trent theme, and then I have got a motorbike on it because Im a member of a motorbike club, and I have got a tent in the design.

I have always done a lot of camping, but for a while I was homeless and I lived in my tent.

I told Hollie what I wanted and she came up with the design. I have wanted it for years.

Hollie, aged 32, of the Old Smithy Tattoo Parlour, said: Joels tattoo took about five or six hours to do. Ive been a tattoo artist since 2010. I did the custom design in my own unique style.

Hollies husband and studio manager, Matt Wall, aged 42, said: I think the tattoo gathering is brilliant. Its great to meet and talk to all the different designers. This is a really good convention.
