Autism Tattoos – Part 2

10 Mar

In January I did a post featuring reader submissions of autism tattoos (you can see that post here). My sister’s tattoo that she had done for our brother was my inspiration for that post. This is my sister and her tattoo…


I decided to do a follow up “Part 2” and share more autism related tattoos after the amazing response I got for my original post. Once again, there was no shortage of family members and friends who had decorated their bodies with symbols of autism. And interestingly, this round there was a strong butterfly theme! Whether to promote awareness, spark conversation, or to serve as inspiration, motivation and a reminder, people show their love by their tattoos. Here they are… click to enlarge.

    My sister who passed away had Aspergers syndrome and I want to get a ribbon tattooed on my arm but it seems there isn’t really a ribbon that is specifically for Aspergers. Or is there? o_0
    The one I’ve found is multicolored with puzzle pieces all over it, but it’s labeled as the ribbon for Autism. So, are the ribbons the same for both Autism and Aspergers?

      I’m so sorry your sister passed away. What a horrible loss. Unfortunately, I don’t know of an Aspergers specific ribbon. But since Aspergers is part of the autism spectrum I’ve seen many people use the puzzle piece ribbon for Aspergers.
