In simple words, people gave tribute to their loved ones who left the world with a solid black arm band tattoo symbolizing mourning & suffering. The band is placed on ankles, arms and wrists & has close association with black cloth armbands worn traditionally as a mourning sign for weeks/days on the arm/sleeve after the death of a loved one. People decided to get these tattoos instead of wearing the cloth for a long time.

I dont like a lot of geometric tattoos but simple solid arms bands and the fading dot pattern is definitely something i could do, maybe leading into a design or something?
