Haven't seen any of those.
What disturbs me is the t-shirt design shops making a killing off of families by selling them t-s with huge pictures of their deceased loved ones on them.
Seems to be limited to SE, so maybe it's a "culture" thing.
Here in Houston, it seems to be a black and Mexican thing. Generally lower class, and often gang-related, but not always.
But nothing beats the student I had several years ago who came in with a new tatoo -- A tombstone with his recently deceased grandmother's name and dates, taking up his entire bicep. And no, I am not kidding.
Oh, I believe you about the tattoo. My daughter dated a guy who had the same type of memorial inked on his calf for his brother who had suicided. His other brother and dad had the same thing done. Creepy.
What kind of an honor is it to have your family plaster your name on the back window of a trashed El Camino? It's rampent here in Arizona, and very creepy if you ask me.
