Mom Updated Her Tattoo To Support Transgender Son

ADVERTISEMENT

Steve and Lindsay Peace have a 15-year-old FTM transgender son. Ten years ago, Steve tattooed their three children, Elliot, Hamish, and Ace, on his wife’s arm. But when Ace came out as transgender to his family a year ago, Steve decided it was time to make some other changes.

“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.”

    A demented family. A pile of garbage with the gene pool to prove it.
