We're all suckers for parents who get tattooed for their young ones. It's something we'd all probably do for our mini versions.
But I don't know if I should hold back my smile long enough to tell you about this one dad who took father and daughter bonding a step further. Yeah, I guess someone getting a One Direction tattoo may be one of the dumbest things I heard today. But when you find out it's for his tots, it's kind of adorable. They're young girls. Of course, they're going to like things like boy bands.
Roger Frazer is a 37-year-old dad of two girls. Both his daughters are huge fans of One Direction. When the girls found out that the boyband were having a concert in Indiana and a radio station was offering front row tickets to see One Direction live, they wasted no time preparing for the contest.
The radio station asked fans to dress their dads as the biggest One Direction fan. However the contest was intended for Indiana residents only, a condition the girls missed in the fine print.
The tattoo was Roger's idea, eager to bond with his daughters and do whatever it takes to make them happy. It wasn't until they gave the contest rules a second take that they realized their very permanent mistake. Since the concert will be held in Indiana, only Indiana residents were allowed to enter the contest. The family lives in Nashville, Tennessee.
The super dad said that he couldn't afford front-row One Direction concert tickets for his daughters and knew that the contest was the only way he can them, so he did what he did. Upon learning their mistake, his daughters posted the photo on Twitter and went on to get over 7,000 retweets.
They were able to watch the concert in the end, though not on front-row seats. The 1D dad is going to keep the tattoo, telling ABC News, “After doing this, I realized to myself that we spend a whole lot of time together [doing things I like to do]. But I got involved with something that they love and it's brought us together even closer than we ever were.” He adds, “I’m keeping it forever.”
