Tattoos have always been an incredible source of self-expression. Anything from a simple butterfly to a complicated design can hold significant meaning. After all, it's all about the story behind the tattoo.
For one young woman, her tattoo brings a whole new meaning to being emotionally significant. Usually when you think of a tattoo, you don't think of it as making a sound. Well Twitter user @sakyrahhh's tattoo not only makes a sound, but plays the voicemail left by her late grandmother. Get your tissues ready.
@sakyrahhh uploaded a video of her tattoo to Twitter on January 2nd.
My grandma passed away my junior year of high school. A month before she passed, she left me a voicemail wishing me… https://t.co/Efsbamn1Jo— 🌻click the link in my bio🌻 (@🌻click the link in my bio🌻)1514946737.0
She then got that exact waveform tattooed across her heart.

@sakyrahhh used a company called "Skin Motion" to get the incredible tattoo.According to their website, you can get up to 30 seconds of audio tattooed onto your body. You just need your phone and to download the Skin Motion app.
The website offers a network of tattoo artists skilled in Soundwave Tattoos.

There's nothing like starting out 2018 with a little kindness from strangers on the internet.

There's also plenty of love going around for the actual tattoo artist behind the piece.Creating that design is no easy task! If they don't tattoo it properly, then the design won't play the soundbite chosen.
After getting the SoundWave Tattoo, you just purchase the activation so you can hear it being played.

You also have to make sure you have the copyright to any sound you get tattooed.So chances are, you won't be able to get a snippet of your favorite song. But that's what makes the service so special; you're getting something tattooed that's fully unique to you and your life.
We completely agree with this tweet...this truly is one of the cutest and sweetest tattoos ever.
@sakyrahhh @UrielWhite Honey this is one of the cutest things ever. My great grandma passed away about 2 years ago… https://t.co/DWWOa7elhf— 💕Tea-Air-Uh💕 (@💕Tea-Air-Uh💕)1514966033.0
