Father of the Year! Loving Dad Gets Tattoo to Match Daughter’s Cochlear Implant So She Wouldn’t Feel Different
Alistair Campbell is a (great) dad from Taupo, New Zealand. His 6-year-old daughter Charlotte is hearing impaired, fully deaf in her left ear, and with a limited ability to transmit sound to her brain from her right. She had her first cochlear implant put in when she was four, and just recently had to go back to the hospital to have another put in. Still, her dad was determined for her not to feel like an outsider because of her condition, so he booked his own appointment, except his was at the tattoo parlor.
Alistair, who previously had no tattoos, shaved his head and had a realistic tattoo of a cochlear implant inked on his scalp. When asked why he did it, he told the New Zealand Herald,
“My love for her really. Hey, my hair can grow back.”
It really is a sweet gesture. He can go about his life with no one the wiser, but any time he wants to reconnect with his daughter, all he has to do is bust out the razor. What a brilliant dad hack.
Charlotte’s diagnosis didn’t come as a surprise – her mother Anita has used a cochlear implant too, and her brother has hearing aids. Now the whole family matches. What’s more, Anita says that the implants have had a wonderful effect on her, transforming her from someone who would keep to herself to “pretty much a social butterfly.” Of course, it can’t hurt that she has some kickass parents.

Marilyn was a big supporter of the Civil Rights Movement. Ella Fitzgerald was one of Marilyn’s idols and a major inspiration. However, the Mocambo nightclub in West Hollywood, the most popular dance spot at the time, refused to let Ella perform there because she was black. Outraged, Marilyn told the owners that if they would let Ella perform, she would be there in the front row every time Ella was onstage. She did, and the two became friends.
According to the great Ella Fitzgerald:
“I owe Marilyn Monroe a real debt—¦it was because of her that I played the Mocambo, a very popular nightclub in the ’50s. She personally called the owner of the Mocambo, and told him she wanted me booked immediately, and if he would do it, she would take a front table every night. She told him – and it was true, due to Marilyn’s superstar status – that the press would go wild. The owner said yes, and Marilyn was there, front table, every night. The press went overboard. After that, I never had to play a small jazz club again. She was an unusual woman – a little ahead of her times. And she didn’t know it.”
