A touching story about a woman, dying of cancer, and her wish for a tattoo. Her son fulfilled her wish by getting the tattoo that she had always wanted.
On March 9, instead getting himself inked with the images of skulls and flames that characterize most of his other tattoos, Leepart chose a picture of a bright green hummingbird to go on his right shoulder. It hovers over four pink peonies, representing each of Klein’s sons.
He had the drawing framed and presented it to his mother the following day before drawing back his shirt to show her the new tattoo.
I encourage everyone to read this story, especially those who feel negatively about tattoos. If you can read this and still believe that all tattoos are selfish acts, I don’t even know what to say.
