Dead Man Skinned to Preserve Tattoos

When we die, we often want to leave some kind of legacy behind us or something that we can pass on to the next generation. For this Canadian tattoo artist, his passion was his legacy and he wanted his tattoos to outlive him.

Before his last days, Chris Wenzel had hoped his children would get to appreciate the work he has done:

"He fell in love with art and had such a passion for tattoos," his wife, Cheryl Wenzel, told the Canadian Press. "He would say he was a slave to the needle because he loved to tattoo so much."

Check out this article from The Guardian to know how Chris’ dying wish was fulfilled.
