Loving Father Gets an Intricate Head Tattoo to Match His Son’s Brain Cancer Surgery Scar

Josh J-Marshall, a cancer advocate and loving dad in Kansas got his shaved head inked at Point Blank Tattoo with an intricate tattoo that perfectly matched the scar on his 6-year old son Gabriel’s head. Gabriel underwent surgery for a brain tumor in 2015, which left a large scar running down the right side of his head, down to his ear. Marshall later entered a really touching photo of the two of them in a St. Baldrick’s Foundation photo contest and won the title of “BestBaldDad”

Me and my son at this year’s St. Baldrick’s event in Wichita, Kansas. Got my son’s scar tattooed to help his self confidence.
