Parents Get Daughters Birthmark Tattooed On Themselves So She Doesn’t Feel Different

These are two amazing and dedicated parents. They would do anything for their daughter including getting a giant birthmark tattooed on themselves.


Honey-Rae was born with a birth mark that covers nearly all of her right side. Her mum Tanya and dad Adam said it was a side effect of medical difficulties Honey-Rae experienced after birth.

The Mirror spoke to the parents about their situation,

She’s struggled to breathe when she was first born and was rushed to the special care unit. When I went to see her she was just lying in a little incubator and that’s when I saw it. It broke my heart.

I just sobbed and sobbed knowing my baby was going to permanently marked for the rest of her life.

Tanya would cover Honey-Rae’s legs whenever they went out to avoid people staring and making her daughter feel uncomfortable. She said she encountered some people staring and whispering.

And I knew if adults could be that insensitive, then kids at school would also be unintentionally mean. She said.

The couple who have three other children decided that they would get Honey-Rae’s birthmark tattooed on their bodies to show her that she will always have her parents love.

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.

What absolutely beautiful parents.
