"I Love You" or "Love You"?

I'm getting a tattoo in memorial for my grandmother who passed away. It will be in her handwriting but I need help deciding how to phrase it. Photo and details inside.

The handwriting samples I have found are in cards to me. She always signed the cards with a "We Love You" because they were from her and my step-grandfather (who I don't particularly care for). The sample I would like to use looks like this
The decision I am trying to make is between getting "I Love You" or "Love You". As you can see, I have the sample I need for "Love You". I do not have a sample with an "I" in it. My family isn't really "tattoo friendly" so the idea of calling them up asking for handwriting samples is a little daunting. I also would prefer that the sample be written to me if that makes any sense. I could probably find a capital "I" in a handwritten recipe somewhere or her address book but I'm not sure if I even want the "I" in it.
Basically I'm just wanting to see what the hive mind thinks in regards to aesthetics. Either phrasing would have the same meaning to me.
