Parents Tattoo Their Legs to Match Their Daughter’s Birthmarks So She Doesn’t Feel Different


Most parents will do absolutely anything for their children, but a couple of caring parents in the UK have taken it one step further by getting huge red tattoos on their right legs to match the birthmark that their 18-month-old daughter Honey-Rae has on her leg.

There has been a lot of controversy about parents Tanya and Adam Phillips decision to do this since this story hit the interwebs a couple of hours ago, with opinions differing wildly.

Continue reading below for more of the story, and then let us know what you think about the parent’s decision in the comments section!


“Although in our eyes she was perfect, I knew people would cruelly point and stare at her”


“I was standing at a check out, when I saw an old couple whispering and staring at Honey-Rae’s leg. I was distraught. It was first time I had taken her out without covering her up and it confirmed all my worries and fears. People are cruel without even realising. We had talked about having duplicate tattoos done for a little while but that day my mind was made up”


“When the swelling went down, I showed Honey-Rae, and she gently touched it and smiled as she said ‘Match,’ pointing to her own leg. If I’d have needed any reassurance that I’d made the right decision that was it”

  1. To Everyone who is criticising – Let little Honey Rae first grow up into a beautiful matured lady n decide if she wants to sue her parents for their kind(according to me) act.
