Tattoos are a piece of art. There is a lot of commitment and investment (time, pain and money) required for a tattoo. Often Tattoos are very personal and are an important part of who one is.  However, unlike traditional pieces of art, these  couldn’t be preserved – well until NOW. For People who love tattoos, there is now a way by which their tattoos won’t be destroyed together with their bodies after they die. Instead, it can be embalmed and framed for their loved ones.

The National Association For The Preservation Of Skin Art (NAPSA) offers its members the opportunity to embalm and frame their tattoos when they die as gifts for their loved ones.
