The caption of the post read, “With Windsor’s strong military presence, we have tried our best to accommodate the numerous requests from the Coldstream Guards to immortalise Her Majesty for their memory. It’s humbling to see the commitment our military has to the Sovereign and the passion they have in their roles. Here is the first of a few sentimental tattoos in memory of the late Queen Elizabeth, patiently tattooed by Baran.”

Another tattoo designer named Brendan Roberts posted about his work on his Facebook page depicting the art he carved on his 49-year-old client, Graham Knowles. The creation of the special tattoo reportedly took six-hour that depicted the late ruler in her tiara and a pair of stud earrings. Knowles told WalesOnline: “With everything going on right now, it felt it was the right thing to do. I am just very proud to be British. I am so proud of the Queen and what she did.”

Besides, these ink that shows the Queen with Paddington bear is quite in demand. One original art work was actually created by an artist named Eleanor Tomlinson during the Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June. However, since the Queen’s death, numerous people have apparently copied it and got it into the form of a tattoo.

Tomlinson is reportedly very upset because of this as in a Facebook post, she wrote: “I cannot reiterate enough. I have given NO ONE PERMISSION to recreate or sell my illustrations under any means or on any items and in any capacity. Any one who is printing, recreating ANY of my work (jubilee/HM related or not) on a commercial basis is doing so without ANY permission or my knowledge.”

“I am saddened and frankly disgusted by others actions related to this. It is not ok. Sorry to all the lovely lovely people who have had to read this rant. It makes my heart sink to the lowest place but it has felt like a last resort,” she added.

The Queen died on September 8 at Balmoral Castle. After her death, King Charles remembered her as a “beloved Mother” and “an inspiration.” He said: “To my darling Mama, as you begin your last great journey to join my dear late Papa, I want simply to say this: thank you. Thank you for your love and devotion to our family and to the family of nations you have served so diligently all these years. May 'flights of Angels sing thee to thy rest'.”
