Dad gets tattoo replica of son’s burn scars so 9-year-old won’t feel alone
FESTUS, Mo. – Joel Thomas is no stranger to the tattoo parlor, but he says his latest piece of art has a special meaning. After his son was badly burned in an accident, Thomas decided to get the same scars inked on his own leg so his son wouldn't be alone in his recovery. "I've been getting tattooed for a long time, but this one means everything," he told KTVI. "It represents, that no matter what happens in life, you can't break the bond of a father and son."
