Moms go to great lengths to honor their children. We frame stuff—footprints, scribbled drawings, heartfelt notes—and place poorly crafted pottery on the mantel for all to see. Yet, paying homage to a child requires so much more for some.
Johanna Giselhäll Sandström is a Swedish mom with two small children. On a whim, she decided to get their names, Nova and Kevin, tattooed on her arm as a continuous reminder of their love for one another. What happened next would change her son’s life forever.
According to The Local, after meeting with a tattoo artist to discuss placement and design, Sandström agreed to get “inked.” When she arrived home later that day, however, she realized he made a permanent mistake.
“I said I wanted the names of my children tattooed on me and I gave the artist their names,” she told Blekinge Läns Tidning. “The artist drew the design and didn’t ask anything about the spelling, so I didn’t give it any more thought.”
