Loving Father Has Daughter's Insulin Pump Tattooed on His Side

A dad gets an unusual tattoo to help comfort his daughter who was recently diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.

Individuals often get tattoos for the people they love. While many of these pieces tend to be as cliche as the word "Mom" scrawled on a heart, occasionally such tattoos rise above mediocrity and exist as truly heartfelt expressions of compassion. This is the case with Alan Hogg, a father who got a tattoo of his daughter's insulin pump on his side.

Abagail was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes last year, and in order to help her feel more comfortable with using her insulin pump, her big-hearted dad had a replica of it tattooed in black and grey on his left side—the same spot where Abagail uses hers. Tattoodo has reported on parents doing this very same thing before, but that doesn't change how heartwarming of a fatherly gesture this is.

One can tell from these photos that Alan and Abagail have a great relationship. Everyone here at Tattoodo wishes her well growing up, and we have a good feeling about her, especially since she has such a great dad. Way to go, Alan. You rock.
