Dad Gets Tattoo So His Daughter Wouldn’t Feel Different
It’s heartbreaking for a parent when their children don’t fit in. New Zealand native and hardcore papa Alistair Campbell decided to take the additional step to help his daughter, Charlotte, feel much better about her cochlear implants by getting one tattooed on his head. The six-year-old lady struggles with severe hearing loss, and got her first implant when she was four years old.
“[I did it for] my love for her, really. Hey, my hair can grow back,” Campbell told the New Zealand Herald. When asked if the 45-minute procedure was painful,he said he felt “a little bit of pain but nothing I couldn’t handle.” Campbell has no other tattoos, and plans to grow out his hair again. He will shave it on special occasions, or upon Charlotte’s request.
Hearing loss runs in family. Mrs Campbell’s mom wore a hearing implant, and Campbell’s 2nd kid, Lewis, likewise wears listening devices. A cochlear implant (CI) is a surgically implanted electronic device that offers a sense of sound to a person who is profoundly deaf or significantly hard of hearing.
