Toronto artist Sarah Skrlj sought inspiration from the idea of tattoos and memories being intrinsically linked. The very act of a tattoo is having a distinct memory, moment, object or person with you forever.
Sadly, Alzheimer's and dementia inevitably cause memories to diminish and wither, but with tattoos, the potential is there for those memories to stay alive... even after the person's memory has faded.
