Amazing story shared by our friends over at Bored Panda!

Keith Anderson, a devoted dad in Ontario, has found a unique way to remember his son Kai’s childhood – his right arm is covered in tattoos based on drawings by his son that he has been getting every year since Kai was 5 years old.

The first one was the daisy- I had it tattooed when he was in kindergarten,” Anderson told Chance Faulkner, a photographer who had an interview with him and took these pictures. “Then we went back and did his name and the house from when he was 4.

Recently, my son was there with me and he did some of the tattooing himself. He loves it. No one I know has ever heard of tattooing original kid art before, and it’s a lot of fun… People ask me what will happen if I run out of space; I guess I’ll just get him to draw smaller pictures.
