Every child turns out to be like their parents. But what if genes did not cooperate and so, baby markings were all unique and permanent neither parents have. Will child feel different and alone? Yes, right! But what if parents decided to adopt the same skin? Ohhh,, that’s love.
British parents decided to take tattoos similar to their daughter’s birthmark so she won’t feel different.
Mother Tanya Phillips said her baby got fixed red markings when she had a respiratory distress from the time she was born.
Let’s get inked!
It was last summer, when mum Tanya was out of shopping, she was with her Honey-Rae, who was wearing short dress and sandals.
Tanya said: “I was stood at a check out till, when I saw an old couple whispering and staring at Honey-Rae’s leg
“I was distraught. It was first time I had taken her out without covering her up and it confirmed all my worries and fears. People are cruel without even realising.
“And I knew if adults could be that insensitive, then kids at school would also be unintentionally mean.”
All whimpering worries washed away when Tanya and Adam decided to make their little angel special, that her birthmark is authentic and good to flaunt by inking theirs permanently.
Last Christmas, Tanya offered her husband a two-and-half-hours ink insertion, extending from his legs to toes.
As a return to her favor, Adam paid for Tanya to also be tattooed as his present in celebrating her birthday this coming weekend. Though she admitted inking tattoo on body has never been into her thought, she still did citing, “It was incredibly painful, especially as I had a flower to cover some old star tattoos, but it was worth every second of the pain.
“When the swelling went down, I showed Honey-Rae, and she gently touched it and smiled as she said “Match”, pointing to her own leg.
Honey-Rae loves touching theirs and hers, feeling happy everytime, such a great assurance that her mum made the right decision.
“Some people will says it odd and think what we’ve done is quite extreme, but in our eyes all we have done is ensure Honey-Rae never feels different. Mummy and Daddy now have the same permanent markings as she does.”
