Doting Father Surprises His Son With a Tattoo of the Boy’s Cochlear Implant in Heartwarming Video
This father proved his love and support for his son by getting a tattoo of the boy's cochlear implant.
A parent's love knows no bounds, and this is an unquestionable fact. Especially those whose children have some disability or a chronic ailment, they go the extra mile to be an unwavering pillar of support for their offspring. They struggle along with their kids, cry with them, provide them comfort and turn warriors if the situation demands. They are selfless in their actions and expect nothing but their child's happiness in return.
This Irish father is no exception. He's winning people's hearts with what he did for his beloved son.
In a video that touched the hearts of millions on social media, the doting father sits across from his son. He then turns his head to show the child a tattoo above his ear. The tattoo surrounds his ear and connects to the back of his head in the shape of a cochlear implant.
It was a heartwarming show of support from the loving father as his son had undergone a cochlear implant surgery. The man got a tattoo of the implant so his little boy wouldn't feel insecure. In the video, he is seen explaining to his son that he got the tattoo for him and the boy's reaction to his dad's gesture of love is priceless.
The boy looks perplexed at first but as he takes a closer look at the tattoo, he realizes how much his father loves him. The doting father then pulls his son towards him to give him a reassuring hug and the young one's innocent smile is one that is sure to warm everyone's heart.
The video has since been reshared on other social media platforms as well where it received an outpouring of love and blessings for the father-son duo. One comment by Jo Peters reads: "What a wonderful man. He sure is the father of the year." Another Facebook user, Virginia Fox, wrote, "I am not a fan of tattoos, but this is brilliant. I am so pleased for the little boy. What a wonderful man." Chris Kilbride McGovern commented, "That is the most touching thing I have seen! My husband just got his cochlear implant. It has changed our world! Good luck to your son."
The text overlay on the video says, "He got a tattoo of a Cochlear implant on his head so that his son doesn't feel different due to his disability." The heartwarming video has been viewed over 1.3 million times since it was shared on TikTok by natalieboyd_xx.
In a similar incident, a couple decided to get a tattoo for their daughter's open heart surgery scar. She had a congenital heart defect since birth and went through several surgeries before turning one. As she grew older, the little one appeared to be disturbed by her scar. Wanting to make her feel more comfortable with herself, the couple told her that it was a zipper that the doctors would open and close when they needed to treat her heart.
They also went a step further and got a tattoo of their child's scar so she wouldn't feel alone. The pretty little girl often catches a glimpse of her father's scar tattoo and comments on how similar it is to hers. It makes her feel good to know she's exactly like him.
