A scribe adds the name of the dead brother to the living brothers’ tattoos, the scribe also adds where the brother was were born, and a note about who they were in life. The grieving brothers tell stories about the deceased. Once the scribe has finished the tattoo, they read it out loud and add the words, “He died in services to his queen, and now he’s free.” As with all important ceremonies, no clothes are worn. The mourner and scribe must bathe first. For attendees, this is optional.
