Tattoo studio helps kids leave a permanent reminder of Father's Day
Jason Lynn, of House of Madness Tattoos in Hampstead, patiently coached Hunter Heinbuch, 6, as he tattooed a turtle on dad leg. The turtle, a hand drawn Hunter original, will be an indelible reminder of this Father's Day.
"We thought it would be something special for me and my son," said Timothy Heinbuch, of Arbutus, Hunter's dad.
Heinbuch said his wife surprised him with the idea after seeing Lynn's advertisement on Facebook. Lynn, who held a Father's Day free tattoo event in 2012, said the post received an overwhelming response.
Noting his pleasure at his wife's having noticed the House of Madness event, Heinbuch said: "She knows that I like tattoos. It was a whole new experience, that's for sure. I was laughing a lot because there was a lot of pressure behind it."
Heinbuch said his son chose the design because the two like to go searching for amphibians and reptiles together.
