A woman recently shared a snap of an unusual tattoo, but the story behind it will give you chills.

After having been technically dead for 27 minutes Tina Hines, who was resuscitated four times by her husband Brian when her heart stopped beating, scribbled an eerie message claiming she’d seen heaven.

Tina’s niece, Madie Johnson from California in the US, in a tribute to her aunt tattooed the scribbled message on her arm and later posted the image on Instagram.

"A little over a year ago my Aunt Tina, one of the most amazing, discerning, and healthy people I know, had an unexpected cardiac arrest,” Madie wrote on Facebook. “According to doctors she’d died and was brought back to life four times by my Uncle Brian and first responders before arriving at the hospital.

"She was put on a defibrillator and after miraculously waking up the first thing she did, unable to speak because she was incubated, was ask for a pen and in my cousin’s journal wrote ‘it’s real’.

“The people in the room asked what’s real and she responded by pointing up to heaven with tears in her eyes.

"Her story is too real not to share and has given me a stronger confidence in a faith that so often goes unseen.

"It has given me a tangibleness to an eternal hope that’s not too far away. I love you [Tina Hines].”

Speaking to following her recovery and near-death event, Tina said the experience felt extraordinary.

“It was so real, the colours were so vibrant,” she said.

The mother-of-four, who scribbled what appeared to be indecipherable lines, further revealed that she saw black gates and Jesus with a “bright yellow glow behind him” standing in front of the gates.

According to CBSN, researchers from NYU's Langone Medical Centre who did a study on patients who’ve had near-death experiences, found that although the brain “shuts down” after death it remains conscious even after the heart flatlines.
