Josie Cunningham has paid tribute to the baby she aborted two years ago by having a sleeve tattoo inked onto her arm. The controversial model – who has four children – made headlines in 2015 when she chose to abort an unplanned pregnancy at 12 weeks in order to undergo a nose job, after surgeons said it was too risky to have the procedure while expecting.
According to sources, she’s now branded that the “biggest mistake” of her life and in a bid to always remember what happened, had various designs inked onto her arm. “She refers to her sleeve tattoo as her ‘shrine’ to her unborn baby. Many people bury their shame and try to forget about the decision to terminate their child – but Josie believes it’s something she would never forget. It’s like she’s punishing herself,” an insider told OK magazine .
As well as inking the date of her abortion onto her skin, Josie had a cherub and an image of the Virgin Mary crying and the quote, ‘Forget what hurt you in the past, never forget what it taught you’ included on the full sleeve design.
