I lost a baby and am looking for ideas for a tattoo that would serve as a memorial to "her". We think it was a girl, but it was too early to tell. Does anyone have any suggestions or have anything for similair reasons that would be willing to share their ideas?

I lost a baby years ago when I was 18 and even thought nothing was confirmed I was adamant it was a boy I had his name picked out so I got a tattoo as my way of remembering him I got a heart with wings behind it, it also has a couple of flames on top so I got a J in the flammes as I wanted to call im Joseph, people dont notice one initial as much so that way if you dont want to have to explain you dont have too.

I had a miscarriage in 2008 and i am getting a tattoo of a heart with footprints in it with Skylers name and date. I love it. It represents having footprints on my heart. We named our baby Skyler Avery, we didn't know the sex either.

I am sorry for your loss Bridget. May I suggest a little baby sleeping in a pair of large cupped hands with the date. The large pair of hands are supposed to represent God (if you are a believer) and it represents that your baby is sleeping safe and sound. When my sister lost her baby they gave the baby a unisex name (it was to early for her to tell the gender as well) and to this day (19 years later) they light a candle on that day for that lost child. If you wanted you could also give this child a unisex name (Dale, Carey...etc) and get that tattooed along with the date and two tiny foot prints and you could do it all in black and grey. I hope thse ideas help and there is a group on Facebook for still births and miscarriages. Every day the pain will lessen but you will never forget this "little angel". Good luck.

my friend had a stillborn at 35weeks. she got a set of pink feet which symbolize a stillborn . i also got a different set of little pink feet. i know you don't know what she sex was of the child but what you could do is get maybe a little set of feet on blue and one pink.

i'm sorry for your loss. It's hard to lose a child (i've had 5 miscarriages so far). Not sure how you feel about small angel wings with a date rather than name (as not sure of sex).

there are so many to chose from it's hard picking. good luck x
