Eli’s memorial tattoo
for his aunt, Lisa Brown
Lovingly remembered by all who knew her, Lisa worked as an Occupational Therapist and a member of the Palliative Care Program at Mount Sinai Hospital. Although small in stature she was larger than life, always treating people with kindness and a special knack for making them feel at ease.
Lisa’s meticulous and vibrant art was a testament to her love of life, and so Eli chose to have a tattoo designed in her memory. Lisa was the gifted artist who created the ‘Closing the Loop on Breast Cancer’ logo for her brother, Dr. Mitch Brown’s, Breast Reconstruction Awareness initiative (now known as BRA Day which is celebrated every October in over 30 countries).
When faced with the daunting task of honouring both Lisa’s indomitable spirit as well as Eli’s tenacity and resilience in dealing with mental health issues, Kyla created the following tattoo design (lower left image on the draughts table) that incorporates the lighthouse motif that salutes Eli’s company called Shine the Light On that helps reduce the stigma of those dealing with mental illness.
The tattoo underwent further metamorphosis in order to better celebrate survivorship and the love Eli had for his Aunt Lisa. She is the beacon that guides him home to his values in times of turbulence; and his family are the rock upon which he steadies himself in times of darkness.
