Our grandparents, in our perspective, are the only people on the planet who more than deserve a tattoo in their honour.

They are or were great persons who made us feel more cherished and appreciated than anybody else on the planet. Only they can give us unconditional love and when they leave us to rest in peace, we are often left heartbroken.

Death is an inevitable phenomenon. However, we can commemorate and hold on to your memory of them by etching their love or them permanently on us. Nothing expresses familial devotion more clearly than permanent body art. These heartfelt memorials are noble and perfectly austere.

We have curated a list of memorial tattoo designs for you to explore and choose from. You can get yourself a portrait of your grandparents done, or opt for something as simple as a personalised symbol that reminds you of your grandparents.

In Loving Memory Of A Grandmother Memorial Tattoo

This simple memorial tattoo design for your grandma is something you might not want to miss out on. It presents two old hands knitting and is framed with floral designs on the side.

The whole piece is done in Fineline style, as the artist used thin lines to create the design that pays tribute to a deceased grandmother. This tattoo design is ideal for the inner arm.

Our grandmother often shows their love for us by knitting clothes that keep us warm and safe from the harsh winter. This tattoo represents the cacoon of love that our grandma makes for us, and is inspired by their love for knitting.

It serves as a perfect memorial tattoo that cherishes the good memories of your grandmother.

In Loving Memory Of A Grandfather Memorial Tattoo

This right here is the cutest tattoo that will remind you of the movie Up.

In this little artwork, the artist created a small circle to make a frame and inside it are two figures: a grandpa and his grandson, staring at the night sky. This little scene will tug at your heartstrings and is ideal for a remembrance tattoo or as a memorial tattoo.

The artist also incorporated the words, “Hasta el cielo, Gracia por la adventura” which translates to “Up to Heaven, Thanks for the Adventure.” How sweet is that?

It′s a beautiful tribute to our grandfather, because we have had the best adventures with them and nothing can compare to that unconditional love we received and lost after they pass.

Thus, this tattoo is a good choice and it will represent a memory of adventure and mark it permanently on you.

Fineline Style Grandparents Memorial Tattoo

How adorable and mushy does this piece look? Created with a minimalist look, this little piece features two very cute figures: grandpa and grandma.

It is made to look like an animated version and is ideal for a memorial tattoo. In flowing font, the words “Grandparents” are etched under the two figures, further enhancing it′s cute look.

Small memorial tattoos as such are popular to commemorate deceased family members as they provide a simple look, and serve as a remembrance while honouring your loved one.

While a picture might capture your loved ones after their death, it is lovely to have symbols or even a portrait tattooed on your body to pay tribute to them while they rest in peace.

Per Sempre Memorial Tattoo

Per Sempre is Italian which translates to “Forever”

Your tattoo will too, and so will the memory you cherish of your grandparents. If you have recently lost your grandparents and want to honour them and their unconditional love for you and for one another, this lettering font tattoo design is ideal.

You can etch the birth date or year of your grandparents, like in the tattoo design we have here and the words “Per Sempre” will ensure their memory will forever be engraved on your skin.

Any member of your family, including your siblings, can get a matching tattoo with this date or year idea. It makes for an ideal memorial tattoo, in remembrance of your grandparents you lost to death.

Love From Grandma And Grandpa Remembrance Tattoo

A script memorial tattoo design is ideal to pay tribute to a deceased person, especially when they are stencilled from your loved ones′ handwriting.

In this piece, the artist made a simple tattoo in a script and a message that says “Love from Grandma and Grandpa,” serving as a perfect old school tattoo design. Something simple yet holds a profound meaning.

You can customize this tattoo by using your grandfather or your grandmother′s handwriting to get tattooed, making the body art that much more special.

Like A Rock Memorial Tattoo

Our grandparents are like our rock, they are always there to nurture us with their unconditional love and support us at every point in our life.

When we see rocks, we associate them with strength, unchanging and something solid. So when we refer to a person as our rock, or like a rock, we see them as someone we can always rely on and someone whose love is unchanging.

A grandfather or a grandmother′s love is like a rock.

This illustration done in Fineline style is a tribute to that very faith that we put on our grandparents, meaning it illustrates “Come Una Roccia” which translates to “Like a Rock”. It features a simple scenery that fill the circle and a few roses frames the outside of the frame.

If you are looking for something cute and with meaning, then this is the tattoo design you will want to get.

This is one of the most unique tattoo ideas out of all the tattoo designs we have discovered so far in our list and quite possibly one of the simple and minimal designs.

A simple letter G is etched with a beautiful font and features two small wings that clearly put emphasis on the fact that your grandparents have passed, leaving the world behind and found peace in heaven.

They are depicted as angels in the simplest way possible and nothing can compare to this simple work done with black ink. If you are someone who prefers small tattoos, and simple, cute tattoo ideas as such then we suggest you opt for this tattoo to commemorate the memory of your grandfather or your grandmother.

Scrabble Tile In Memory Of Grandpa Tattoo

It is an old school tradition for many families to have a family game and a specific day dedicated to the game. All young and old family members participate and it is a beautiful celebration of bonding of its own, bringing immense joy and laughter.

It is extra special when you share a special memory or two with your Grandpa while playing Scrabbles. It might be your own personal little solace and source of happiness and a memory you will cherish forever.

What more could be relevant and cherish the life of a loved one more than the daily symbols that serve as a remembrance of the life they lived? A scrabble title does just that.

Such memorial tattoo ideas are rare and unique. They are also open for customization. As in, you can easily add a special date that marks their birth or the day they passed.

Portrait Tattoo For Grandparents′ Memorial

Portrait tattoo ideas are immensely popular, especially when it comes to honouring a loved one who has passed and it serves as beautiful memorial artwork.

Old images or an old photo of your grandparents can hold a lot of meaning for you and you might hold those images close however, pictures fade with time. But a tattoo will never fade, even when they do, you can always get them retouched.

Thus, it is a brilliant idea to get a portrait of your grandparents tattooed on you, that way you can always carry them with you.

Mostly, portrait tattoos are placed on the forearm or your inner arm and biceps.

We would also suggest you find artists who are great at their work seeing as portrait tattoos are complicated and need expert hands to create a replica.

Poppy And Daffodil Flowers For Memorial Tattoo

Last but not least, we have a poppy and daffodil tattoo that represents a grandfather and grandmothers′ever-loving pair and their togetherness, even in death. The poppy flower is said to symbolize both life and death and daffodils are symbols of renewal and life.

Together, they make for a perfect pair. The message “together forever” is clearly passed with two simple etchings of flowers, perfect for the world to see and recognize the message of togetherness.

Acquiring a memorial tattoo is undoubtedly a melancholic experience. Memorial tattoos are used to remember and commemorate a loved one or someone close who has died. Being with someone you love and care for cannot be substituted or replaced with a tattoo. However, if they have passed away, memorial tattoos may be a wonderful way to memorialize their life and actions while also keeping your love permanent.
