Body modification for love

Within the capability of “in-vitro culture meat” technology, I left the field of animal meat production in order to find a way to connect individual memory to the body. My proposal includes a technique for genetically growing selected parts of your beloved person on your skin. Having a nipple of your loved one would be one option, growing a mole of your partner another. It would also be possible to grow a patch of living hair on your arm, reminding you of your mum. It's much like a tattoo, but you would have to shave it for maintenance.
