Cremation Portrait: Owner Has Photo Printed with Dead Dog’s Ashes

There’s all kinds of things people do to remember their beloved pets after they pass away, but here’s a pretty creepy one: a dog owner in Norway had a photo of their Gordon Setter named Susie printed with her ashes. Norwegian design studio Skrekkøgle figured out a way to rebuild a printer to accept dog ashes as “ink”, allowing them to print a vintage-looking black-and-white photograph of Susie.

The studio is also offering to do this for other grieving pet owners, but you’ll have to contact them to find out the pricing and specific details.

    Ummmm……..a little odd. 

    “Aww, is this little Pete before he dead” 

    “Yup, and after.”

    Well that’s fucking morbid…

    Appropriate name on the business tho.
    Skrekkøgle is loosely translated into horror lizard.

    Ignoring the dog-ash-inkjet concept… I like their GIANT coin to make illusion compressed DOF shots. Amazing.

    GAHHH….. I was just gonna click like… but this deserves a comment.  Well played. 

    I don’t see this as much more morbid than some of the other “preservation” methods… unique for sure.

    I don’t think this is morbid necessarily. People get really attached to their pets and this is just another way for them to deal with the loss of a member of their family. It may be a little strange, but it’s also kind of neat! If they ever figure out a way to do it en-mass I may even consider it as part of my cremation services.
