Parents Go All The Way So Their Daughter Won’t Feel Different

Having large birthmarks can be hard for children, especially when they start school. Children can be such bullies sometimes. Honey-Rae is an 18 month old girl who was born with a birthmark on his leg.


One day amazing, her parents, Tanya and Adam Phillips decided to do something so that their daughter doesn’t feel different because she has a birthmark. Both Tanya and Adam got tattoos on their right legs same as the birthmarks of their little toddler.


“Although in our eyes she was perfect, I knew people would cruelly point and stare at her. I was standing at a checkout till, when I saw an old couple whispering and staring at Honey-Rae’s leg. I was distraught. It was the first time I had taken her out without covering her up and it confirmed all my worries and fears. People are cruel without even realizing. We had talked about having duplicate tattoos done for a little while, but that day my mind was made up”- says her father David.


“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”.
