Derek Prue Sr. learned that his son Derek Prue Jr. was extremely self-conscious about his birthmark that covered a large part of his upper left torso.

Like any parent, when Derek Sr. learned that his son was hurting, he wanted to find a way to help.

So, he decided that he would get a tattoo that matched his son's birthmark so that his son wouldn't feel so alone.

He kept the tattoo a secret from his son during the 6-week process.
