tattoo artist Luke always being judged for the way he looked and he never cared until you came along. People would always criticise him for “not being good enough for her” “she could have someone who’s so much better” and it would hurt Luke so much. You didn’t care what people thought but Luke felt he had to make it up to you for “not being the typical boyfriend”. You noticed how he would do random little things throughout the day to try make you happy such as buying you flowers, cleaning up the apartment or cooking you dinners till one day you found out why he works so hard to please you. You’d find him in the kitchen of your little apartment at 3am with a sad look on his face. “Whats the matter sweetheart?” you’d ask him while pulling a chair beside him to sit and he’d just sigh and explain how he feels you deserve a “normal” boyfriend and not someone who has lots of tattoos or a relationship that doesn’t get criticised and hated on as much. You’d be shocked that he felt this way because you didn’t even notice the comments, you’re just so in love with him that you don’t care what others thought and with that you’d get up from your seat and hug him. You’d hug him so tight that he knows you love him. “you’re my person Luke, you’re the only one for me and what people think doesn’t matter, I’m so in love with you and id do anything for you and right now i just want to hurt the people who made you so sad” you’d tell him with a smile and he would let out a breathy laugh while hugging you back and burying his face into your neck. “I love you so much” he’d muffle out and squeeze you tightly. You’d then tell him how you appreciate everything he does and how he makes you happy and that he doesn’t have to do what he does just because of judgemental people but that he should do it out of love and kindness, which he obviously does. He would finally realise how much you love him after that conversation and how much you want to be with him because of the person he is. You wouldn’t change him for the world and thats all he needed to know.
