This is the incredibly heartwarming moment a young man showed his younger brother who has Down syndrome his new tattoo on his arm showing his brother’s face inside the mouth of a lion.
His brother takes a few moments admiring the ink work as he smiles and gently runs his hand on it before he realizes what the tattoo is of. He is definitely beyond elated as he leans across his car seat and kisses and giving him a tight affectionate hug.
Their mother, Soares Sheila, from Rio de Janeiro, posted the sweet video with pictures on her Facebook account with the caption, “Look at my puppy’s reaction to the beautiful tribute, his face tattooed inside a lion’s mouth. The video is EXCITING. That’s why I saw Rafa asking Erick to make brave face”
“My dear friends, when I posted this video I could swear that it would not cause this dimension of sharing that caused. THIS IS CALLED GOD. Because he was the cause of the success of this video, because contrary to what many people think, I have never had anything easy in this life, only US and GOD and the closest friends know well what I’ve already spent in life so Erick is here with us.
Out many battles, many approvals, many fights, many defeats, and many victories, but I never gave up on my children. And I won. Do you know why? Because God exists yes, just have faith, perseverance and believe that one day everything will solve.
I swear to all of you that my intention when I posted this video was just to show one more of their episodes. Many thanks to all the friends who shared the video of my children, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart to all you guys.” She later added.
The post has had thousands of shares and people from all over the world are reaching out to the family with sweet messages of appreciation. One person said, “How not to be moved by the love between sibling. Only those who have siblings know what the connection is.”
“One of the most beautiful tattoos I have ever seen.” Another added.
