Father of the Year! Loving Dad Gets Tattoo to Match Daughter’s Cochlear Implant So She Wouldn’t Feel Different

dad gets tattoo of cochlear implant to match daughter

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.
