My grandma passed away my junior year of high school. A month before she passed, she left me a voicemail wishing me happy birthday. Today I got that exact waveform tattooed across my heart, and I am able to play it just by holding my camera over it❤️❤️ pic.twitter.com/nwoQ2Bn1DM— 🌻click the link in my bio🌻 (@sosxofficial_) January 3, 2018

That’s how I got this tattoo for those asking ❤️
The video of the unique tattoo is going viral not only because of its heartwarming backstory, but also because it has a surprising feature: the voicemail audio can actually be played thanks to an app that can read the waveform aloud. Sakyrah shared a photo of the tattoo on Instagram and explained, "Thanks to a new company called Skin Motion, I am able to play her voicemail when I hold my camera over the tattoo. Her voice will forever be across my heart. Big thank you to @s.ryder_tattoos for the tattoo." In the video above, you can her Sakyrah's grandmother say, "I love you. Happy Birthday."
What an incredible way to carry memories of a loved one close to you forever. We're not crying; you're crying!
