Josh Marshall got a vivid, realistic scar to match his son Gabriel’s surgery scar to help the young boy’s confidence as he battles a rare form of brain cancer, ABC News reports. Gabriel was diagnosed with anaplastic astrocytoma in March of 2015, and the surgeries to remove his tumor left him bald and with a prominent scar on the right side of his head.
“My son was very self-conscious after he got his surgery. He felt like a monster,” Marshall told ABC News. Marshall made the decision to get a matching tattoo in August 2015. He says Gabriel loves the tattoo and tells people they are like twins.
