cochlear tattoo

We know we’re usually all about the Mums around here.  And with good reason, too.  (Such as, but not limited to, your general awesomeness).  But every now and then we see a Dad doing something that’s pretty fantastic, and we like to share those stories with you.  Especially when the story involves a dad shaving his head and getting a tattoo of a cochlear implant!

Taupo dad Alistair Campbell signed up for his first tattoo this week when his 6 year old daughter Charlotte received her second cochlear implant.  He says it was a “gesture of support”, and it seems to have gone down well with his little girl, who touched it, giggled, and said it was “cool”.

A photo of the pair has gone viral on twitter, with people saying it was a beautiful gesture.  For Campbell, however, what matters is that Charlotte will always know the tattoo is there — and if she ever wants proof, he’s willing to shave his head again to show her. “The tattoo was a tribute – this was all about her, not me,” he said. “We have a close father-daughter bond, and I thought it would be quite fitting for me to do that. As she grows older, she’ll understand the love behind it.”

If you have a child with a hearing assisted device in your family or friend circle, here are a couple of stories worth checking out! “Let’s Hear It For Almigal” for ages 5 to 8 (http://www.amightygirl.com/let-s-hear-it-for-almigal) and “El Deafo” for ages 8 to 12 (http://www.amightygirl.com/el-deafo).
