The September 30 photo of the underside of a left wrist included a series of hashtags: #RipGabby, #didnotknowherbutwillalwaysremberher, #JusticeForGabby and then ended with a question:

Why couldnt [Brian] just let her be..

In September, both of Gabbys parents, Nicole Schmidt and Joe Petito showed off their right forearms fit with Let it be tattoos and ocean crest.

They also received a believe tattoo in script brimming over with flowers.

For them, it was a way to keep the 22-year-old Long Island native with them all the time.

The showing of solidarity with Gabby by duplicating the same ink riffing off the Beatles hit song, Let it Be, was convincing others to the same while rankling some.

I love this, reads one response. Ive thought about getting it done too.

Read our Gabby Petito live blog for the very latest news and updates...

Some are Beatles fans but see no harm in getting inked to pay respects to Gabby.

Its actually a really beautiful tattoo, one person offered.

I thought about getting it It would remind me of Gabby, but thats not why I would get it.

Whatever someones reasoning is, its their own.

But the majority of 750 comments met the idea with discord.

Only family or her close friends should be getting tattoos in memory of her, one commenter wrote. Especially her own personal tattoo I get its a song but when you say your getting it for gabby is just odd.

Some scolded the effort as an insult to Gabbys grieving family.

Bro, if I were Gabbys mother and I found out complete strangers were replicating her tattoo to remember her, I would be PISSED! Like hunting your asses down to teach you a lesson about respect."

Seriously stop, wrote the commenter. How do you think her mother & parents would feel, as THATS THEIR WAY OF BEING CONNECTED to her.

The person said the effort was offensive.

Its the last thing they have of her & you wanna go & ruin it by adding yourself to their circle ABSOLUTELY WRONG & DISRESPECTFUL!!

A person who admitted getting the tattoo 10 years ago did so "because I was bullied really bad in school" and struggled with addiction.

The person didn't agree with getting such a tattoo to pay respects to the late young woman.

"But I would never get let it be in memory of gabby... unless I knew her personally," the person confessed.

Gabby was last seen on August 24, 2021, checking out of a hotel with Brian in Salt Lake City, Utah.

When Gabby was first reported missing, photos of her tattoos were being shared as a way to confirm her identity.

Since Gabby's remains were found on September 19 in the Bridger-Teton National Forest in Wyoming her distinct tattoos were used to verify the body as Gabbys.

The believe and Let It Be tattoos serve as a somber reminder of Gabbys faith, and the firm belief her parents professed in the early days of the search, that their daughter would come home.

The wave and flower tattoos signify Gabbys appreciation of natural abundance.

Her love of nature was a central tenet of the young vloggers personality, and a pivotal force behind her decision to live the van life that had her trekking across the country to several national parks.

Gabby's father Joe also sported a lefthand tattoo mimicking a set of two vines that wrapped around both her and Brians fingers

According to TattooSEO, vine tattoos represent loyalty and a desire to stick by someones side.

Last year, Brian posted a photo of himself and Gabby, which included the caption Till death do us part or until I wake up, Im so happy the answer was yes.
