Dad Gets Tattoo To Match Son’s Cancer Surgery Scar
“I told him if people wanted to stare, they could stare at both of us,”
We may have just celebrated Father’s Day but this Dad deserves a major tribute of his own. Gabriel Marshall decided to support his young son, who recently underwent brain surgery to remove a cancerous tumor, by getting a tattoo on his head that mirrors his son’s surgery scar.
The 28-year-old Kansas resident said the scar was affecting his young son’s self-confidence and wanted to make a meaningful gesture to boost up his personal outlook. The pair entered a competition on Father’s Day for the “Best Bald Dad,” posting images of the pair to Facebook. “Me and my son at this year’s St. Baldrick’s event in Wichita, Kansas,” Marshall wrote. “Got my son’s scar tattooed to help his self confidence.”
Images of the dueling scars that Marshall posted online have already been viewed hundreds of thousands of times.
“I told him if people wanted to stare, they could stare at both of us,” Marshall said in an interview with BuzzFeed.
