Fathers Day

Intense design work being done, the day before Father’s Day, when a man celebrates the life (and soul) of his beloved son. “I never, ever thought I would get a tattoo,” Cal says, “until it really mattered.”

Tattooing has such a subtle and powerful effect. It makes the grief tangible. You can’t see emotional grief, but tattoos are a way to express the unexplainable. You can feel the pain of the tattoo, and you can see it. And then you remember and you are allowed to move through the experience.

Haiku Poem written by Cal…

In the common Pain

Healing finally Begins

The Ink is the Light
