The Creepy Cremation Artist: Why are they so “Creeped” Out?
Be they morticians, pathologists, funeral house workers or gravediggers – people who deal with the dead have always been assumed to be interesting, because, well, they deal with the dead. Movies and books always seem to present workers in those professions as outright creepy. They play around with the bodies of the deceased. looking at something like this everyday can make anyone look creepy.
This is the very reason why I don’t usually mention that I am a Cremation Artist. People don’t want to think about death.The idea of using human remains to create art can be super creepy to some people.
In the past a Post-Mortem Photographer would memorialized your loved one in an artist photograph. Back in the Victorian ages it was common to have a family portrait taken when someone in the family died. Families who wanted to remember their loved ones after they had passed did so with a family “Death Photo”.
Today People find it just down right creepy by the thought of looking at a photo of their loved one after death as a way to remember them. Most people don’t even want to view the body, Fearful of death and afraid that the image will be forever imprinted into their minds.
Let’s just face it death creeps people out. Before I started doing Cremation Art I would have agreed. Now that I have a much deeper understanding of death and the process of cremation and burial. The job of the mortician and funeral director is really much more beautiful than anyone knows.
This person will be the last person to touch your loved ones body. Preparing them for the souls journey home. Every detail from funeral director to cremator is genuinely the most honorable job of the living besides hospice care nurses. Like spirit guides they comfort the living and honor the dead. It really is so very beautiful. There is nothing creepy about honoring someone’s loved one. All of this being a job that not everyone can do.
Even though it appears creepy, in all reality I think most people are thankful that there are people out there that can do this job. Someone willing to wash your loved ones face for the last time. Paying attention to every detail to help make the families experience with grief and loss easier. This is the reason that I became a Cremation Artist. Not everyone can turn human remains into a work of art. Not everyone can be a spirit guide or “Capture the Last Breath”.
People are so fearful of death. And I don’t think that society is going to change views about the “creepy mortician” or the “Creepy Cremation Artist” any time soon with all the great scary zombie movies out there. Such a burden to bare and no one giving them any credit for being the one who is most likely to be bitten and turned into a zombie first.
