A father tells his young son the story behind each of his tattoos. There’s one from a favorite book his mother used to read him, one from something his father used to tell him, and one from the longest trip he ever took. And finally, there’s a little heart with numbers inside—which might be the best tattoo of all.
In this beautiful conversation between parent and child, some very special tattoos illustrate an ode to all that’s indelible—ink and love.
