Agustina told Bored Panda that some time ago she tattooed her idol’s signature and so she thought it was a nice gesture to do something similar for her grandparents. She shared that they are very important to her. “I was going to make a drawing made by them but my sister and my parents had the idea of having my grandparents’ names written by themselves, I thought it was an excellent idea!”

It all started when Agustina asked both of her grandparents to write their names on a piece of paper

Her excuse was that she needed it “for college”

After Agustina got the tattoo, she went to see her grandparents so that she could show it to them. “Remember writing your names for me some time ago?”

Augustina shared that everyone in her family was very excited, happy, and anxious for her grandparents to see the tribute that the woman made to them.

“My grandparents were the first people from my family I did this tattoo for, but I would do it to anyone I love without hesitation. My family is very important to me.”

So she revealed what that was really all about

Agustina revealed that she had no idea her grandparents would be so excited! “My grandfather doesn’t like tattoos, whenever he sees a tattoo on me I say that it is temporary but when I told him that this one would last a lifetime, he was so thrilled!”

“Grandparents always mark a before and after, they pamper us and teach us a lot since we are little kids. They are our superheroes, I call them that. You are lucky if you got the chance to meet your grandparents. They are really amazing.”

that is wonderful. I'm usually not in favour of tattooing someone's name on you but this is just sweet and will make a great memory

It's extra special that it's in their own handwriting too. She'll always have a little piece of memory with her.

Those onion ninjas are bothering me now. Man, this is so freaking sweet and is something I wish I'd done while my grandparents were still alive.
