“The tattoos of my kids took a couple hours each 10 years ago,” Steve told Bored Panda. “The coverup took a little over an hour as everything was already there and we just had to update the tattoo with fresh lines and the gender change.  I still  have to update my other 2 kids as the details have faded a little over the last decade.”
