Their 18-month old Honey-Rae was born with a port-wine stain, a kind of vascular birthmark that covers the entire right side of her body. Adam and Tanya were afraid that her birthmark would cause her to be self-conscious as she got older. So they both got matching tattoos to look like her mark.

Tanya told Mirror that is wasn’t until she noticed an older couple staring and whispering about her daughter’s leg that their decision became solidified.
