Struggling to find someone on her own, this woman figured she would prolong getting married
by getting her parents to arrange it, but they called her the next day
saying they found the perfect person for her.
She met him and was instantly “swept off her feet.”
They married and had a child.
When she was pregnant with their second, he suddenly passed away.
Eighteen months after her husband’s sudden death, she had his name in Punjabi inked on her inner wrist.
The tattoo helped her work through her anger and her grief.
She says of her tattoo, “I want it to be a good thing. I want, when the children look at it, to be like,
daddy is always with mommy a bit.”
