Dad gets tattoo matching daughter's implant
Alistair Campbell got tattoo of cochlear implant to support his daughter Charlotte
TAUPO, NEW ZEALAND – There are very few things a father won't do to support his family.
For one dad in New Zealand, that meant getting inked to match a device his 6-year-old daughter received to help her hear.
Just days before Charlotte Campbell underwent surgery to be fitted for a cochlear implant in her right ear, her father Alistair got a tattoo that matched the device to perfection.
A photo of the two with their implants, one real, the other in ink, was posted on Facebook and has since become a viral hit.
According to the New Zealand Herald, Alistair, who has no other tattoos, said he did it to show his daughter that he could go through a little bit of pain for her too.
Charlotte had her first implant put in back in 2013.
The cochlear device provides a sense of sound to those who are deaf or hard of hearing by stimulating the nerves of the inner ear.
