    A new trend is emerging, preserving your loved one's Tattoo's. Yes, you have it correct. If yor loved one passes on, and he is well 'ink'ed'. You may request that he be de-skinned. Then you can preserve his skin either in a frame, or a lamp shade, or maybe a lovely floor mat.

    Or maybe you can have the skin grafted onto your own thus allowing a piece of your loved one to live on a bit longer!

    There are many ways of memorializing a loved one. I have a tattoo that symbolizes the life of my ex-partner who passed a few years ago at a very young age.

    That's kinda creepy. What's next? Cutting their heads off and displaying in a nice crystal jar. Sorry, I would rather remember them without having body parts.

    I had a college roommate for two years who with his brother and their parents are all that remained of their entire family murdered by Hitler and company in the holocaust, his parents both concentration camp survivors. I saw their tattoos. I forget now if they were in the same camp or if they met over here. One was in Auschwitz. I also remember--and I've stayed at their home--that the father screams every night in his sleep. The mother, captured as a pre-adolescent, watching her family gassed and God knows what else, never quite grew up. She lived her life somewhat childlike, the damage so horrible and deep. They could not have been lovelier people and they lived for their kids. And boy did those kids knowingly take advantage of that haha.

    But my roommate had this very odd sense of humor in handling what was forced to be his heritage. He joked all the time about the Nazi's. Some very funny, some very sad but always I knew that was his way of coping. One of the things he often joked about was his aunt, referring to his murdered relative as the lampshade.

    "My aunt, the lampshade," he’d joke.

    Just as a contrast, in some parts of Europe, Nazis were welcomed and seen as saviors because they forced the russians out. Nazis were seen as a hope, because some nations always had to compare russians with germans and for those people, in their eyes, russians commited worse crimes against their nations than nazis. So in some parts of Europe, people helped nazis mainly because of their fear to experience russian terror again. Till this day some nations remember some nazis, the ones who were dragged to fight on the nazi side against russians, as respectable and worth remembering.

    I just don't get why you posted it here

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Occupation_of_the_Baltic_states
    Nazi racial attitudes to the Baltic people differed between Nazi authorities. In practice, racial policies were directed not against the majority of Balts but rather against the Jews. Large numbers of Jews were living in the major cities, notably in Vilnius, Kaunas and Riga. The German mobile killing units slaughtered hundreds of thousands of Jews; Einsatzgruppe A, assigned to the Baltic area, was the most effective of four units.[60] German policy forced the Jews into ghettos. In 1943 Heinrich Himmler ordered his forces to liquidate the ghettos and to transfer the survivors to concentration camps. Some Latvians and Lithuanian conscripts collaborated actively in the killing of Jews, and the Nazis managed to provoke pogroms locally, especially in Lithuania.[61] Only about 75 percent of Estonian and 10 percent of Latvian and Lithuanian Jews survived the war. However, for the majority of Baltic people, German rule was less harsh than Soviet rule had been, and it was less brutal than German occupations elsewhere in eastern Europe.[62] Local puppet regimes performed administrative tasks and schools were permitted to function. However, most people were denied the right to own land or businesses


    10% survived. That's some contrast.

    that was the case not only in Baltics, but in other parts in Europe like Ukraine ...
    You should look into ''Holodomor'' and see what soviets did to Ukrainian people while in Baltics there were large scale deportations to Siberia where the conditions were no better than nazi concentration camps

    well you know WWII does not revolve around jews alone icon_lol.gificon_rolleyes.gif

    it was a great tragedy for most of Europe, Eastern Europe in particular, because it was destroyed by 2 sides, soviets and germans and then occupied by soviet union and it was a great tragedy for germans themselves as well.

    From the 1800s I've ancestors who fled the Ukraine pogroms. Also those who fled pogroms in St. Pete. And now we see gay people abused in Russia. I never claimed to be a fan of Stalin, the Soviets or of Russia.

    I commented directly upon the skin as lamp comment in the OP which I found offensive for obvious reason, as anyone should, be that myth or not. Certainly skin artifacts are known as are atrocities at the hands of the Nazi's which is the very reference of using human skin as lamp.

    Gloves made from human skin. Possesion of Ilse Koch, commandant of the Nazi concentration camps Buchenwald and Majdanek. Museum of the Great Patriotic War, Kiev

    So appropriate to the OP's OP, my comment reflects my sensitivities. I presume yours reflecting of yours.

    Oh you little scamp. By sensitivities I referred to sense of propriety. For you to play upon my personal sensitivities I'd have to actually give a flying fuck about your opinion. For you to broaden my spectrum of thought, you'd first have to come up with an original one of your own. Good luck with that.

    But if you want to believe that you've managed to influence my humanity, then I say, well, good for you. As long as not harming others, everyone is entitled to their delusions.

    If someone has any way of preserved skin hanging on the wall, I would run out as quick as possible. Something about that just creeps me out.

    From preserving tattoo's, we moved back to the Holocast where the Nazi's brutally murdered over 6 000 000 Jews. Then we went on to describe them as 'Saviours'. "The only Russian I like is the one on a bread roll, smothered in Mustard", unless he is blonde and looks like Dolph Lundgren. Thanks for that awesome touching story 'tj85016'. But let's stick to the subject. Is it not similar to keeping an 'Heirloom'; that favourite ring, a T-Shirt he/she loved, a vacation photograph, etc. Personally, keeping someone's skin, however fantastic their Tat's are, sounds like something from 'Silence of the Lambs'.

    Yes, it sounds like silence of the lambs and it's creepy. How dare anyone derail such a grisly thread with stories about genocide and famine?

    Why stop at a tattoo?

    Why not preserve your lover's nipple or foreskin? Or face which you can wear around the house? Why even wait for him to pass on? Take a cue from this proactive cutie:

    The human skin lampshade that Ilse Koch had is the first thing that popped into my mind when I read the original post. I've read too much about the Holocaust and it's not something you forget.

    Skinning your loved one is sick. If you wanna preserve the tattoo images then photograph them.
