To Make Their Daughter Feel Special, Parents Got Tattoos Similar To Their Daughter’s Birthmark





For her 40th birthday, mother Tanya Phillips  did something unusual. Instead of spending her big day on luxury dinner or a special trip, she underwent a full leg tattooing of a big birthmark. Needless to say, the four-hour procedure was painful.

While many find Tanya’s choice of birthday celebration as quite strange, it was a very special choice for her. The unusual tattoo design was actually patterned on her daughter Honey-Rae’s strawberry-rose birthmark, which covers almost half of the right side of her body.

After seeing her daughter’s birthmark for the first time, Tanya’s heart was broken because she knew the permanent marking could have a huge effect on Honey-Rae ‘s life.

Even if Honey-Rae is perfect for Tanya and her husband Adam, strangers would stare or whisper comments about her legs. At one point, she saw an old couple whispering about her daughter’s leg while they were out shopping.

This is why Tanya and Adam came up with decision that would change her daughter’s life forever.

“We knew we had to do something to ensure Honey-Rae grew up knowing she was very much loved.”

Now that the couple have matching tattoos with their daughter, Tanya thinks they made the right decision as their permanent markings made their daughter giggle.

“She now constantly touches mine and Adam’s tattoos then her own birthmark and giggles – I couldn’t be happier.”
