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.

Remember Eric Hartsburg, the guy who got a face tattoo of the Romney-Ryan campaign logo and declined an offer to get it removed for free even after the election because he is a man of his words? Well, he apparently changed his mind and he's flying out to Los Angeles, CA next week for the first of many laser tattoo removal sessions to get rid of it, according to Politico.
