Hero Dad Spends 30 Hours Getting Tattoo to Match Sons Birthmark
Parents do some extraordinary things for their children sometimes. A Canadian man got a tattoo matching his son’s birthmark to cheer the boy up.
The entire process took 30 hours in a tattoo parlor chair. But sometimes there’s no price of time or pain for the love shared between a father and his son. Derek Prue Sr. wanted to make his son feel better about himself. The 8-year-old boy had been born with a large birthmark across an entire half of his chest.
He noticed his son feel self-conscious about the large birthmark that covered the top right portion of his torso.
The boy refused to go swimming because it required taking his shirt off in public. Or if he did, he would leave his shirt on. Prue, who lives in Alberta, Canada, decided to get the tattoo so his son wouldn’t feel alone.
Despite the pain, it’s something he wouldn’t change for anything.
“It felt good to do it. It was a long process to do it. I thought it was going to be, like, a few hours. I’m kind of glad I didn’t know how long it was going to take,” Prue said. “Now we have the same marks for life.”
