Some people go to amazing lengths to show just how much they love their ‘rents, but nothing can beat tatted skin to show the depth of your love.
That’s why 18-year-old Anicia Boler decided to get her parents’ names tattooed on her shoulders.
She captured her parents’ reactions to the tattoos in a sweet clip posted to Twitter on Monday.
On Boler’s left shoulder is her mother’s name, Niani. On her right is her father’s name, Harold. She said her mother is her heart and her father is her strength, via Twitter DM.
Boler’s mother was the first to peel away the bandage. When she saw her name, she was left speechless.
Boler, a recent high school grad who will be going to college in the fall, says her parents mean a lot to her. The tattoo, she says, is meant to honor and serve as a sweet reminder of her parents while she’s away from home.
“I just wanted to get something to let them and myself know that they will always be there with me,” she said.
