In life, you can't always metaphorically save your skin, but Save My Ink wants to do it literally.

A new business out of Cleveland, Ohio, wants to help your loved ones save the tattoos that mean the most after you're gone. That involves literally taking the skin off a deceased person, preserving it and framing it nicely.

The Daily Mail details the process and the inspiration:

The skin is put through a chemical and enzymatic process to permanently alter the chemical structure of the tissue and stop it from decaying.

So far the service, which was officially launched in America last week, has successfully preserved 21 tattoos - with 100 per cent accuracy.

Charles Hamm, 60, founder of Save My Ink, also known as the National Association for the Preservation of Skin Art, said they hope to serve tattoo enthusiasts worldwide.

'When I was getting more tattoo work completed on my back piece, a 10,000 dollar investment, I began considering all of the money and time I had put into my tattoos.

'You would never burn a Picasso or any piece of art you invested in and had a passion for. Your tattoo is also art with a unique story, just on a different canvas.

If I'd trust anyone with my skin, it'd be that guy.

A previously overweight man who lost 160 pounds and shares his techniques and tips in a series of YouTube videos call "Obese to Beast," has posted a new video opening up about his biggest insecurity.

John Glaude, who used to weigh 360 pounds, removes his clothes for the first time on camera to show his viewers the loose skin that resulted from his dramatic weight loss.

"I really wanted to make this video for everyone that struggles with loose skin, and for everyone who might be worried about loose skin!" he wrote in the comments.

He says in the video that he encourages people trying to lose weight to not let that stop them from going forward.

"My dreams are to be very happy in my skin, and I am."
