"I love that I can hear my father's voice forever now."

In 2017, tattoo artist Nate Siggard introduced his soundwave tattoos and has since helped families discover new ways to remember loved ones who have passed away. 

Named for their design, these tattoos are encoded with sweet voice messages left by loved ones before their death, and are easily played back using the Skin Motion app. 

For mom-of-two, Yvette Moore, getting a soundwave tattoo was the perfect way to honour her father because she feared forgetting the sound of his voice after he died.
