Dad Gets Tattoo To Match Son’s Heart Surgery Scar
After six-year-old Joey had heart surgery, his dad got a tattoo to match his son’s scar. Joey had the surgery because of a birth defect that affects the blood flow to the heart and the rest of the body and to help him get used to his new scar, his dad, Martin Watts, got ink on his chest that looks like the boy’s scar.
Joey’s mom, Leanne, says her son feels better about what he’s dealing with now that his dad has a matching mark. “It’s absolutely fantastic,” she explains. “It just shows him it’s nothing to be scared of and that he should be proud of what he has achieved in life.”
