Rest in Peace Taylor

Memorial tattoos are always filled with emotions for the wearer, however a memorial tattoo of a child is just heartbreaking to everyone.  Jackie Rabbit did this portrait for her friend Natasha.  Here’s what she had to say.

When my friend Natasha asked me to do a portrait of her daughter that had passed on I was honored but also pretty nervous. It was only my second portrait but we both had faith. Taylor Makenzie was born with a terrible degenerative disease. The photo we decided to use was one of the last taken before she passed away. Despite her pain and even having to wear a breathing tube much of the time she did her best to stay upbeat and always had a smile for everyone one. She was only on this earth for a short time but her sweet nature and brave soul touched the hearts of everyone that was lucky enough to meet her.

Jackie works at Star City Tattoo in Roanoke, VA.

    I can smile
    I can go there
    Into the heart of a child
    I can go back
    I can stay awhile”
    Beautiful Portrait!!
