This Awesome Tattoo Artist Creates Meaningful Leg-Brace Designs For A Child In Need.

Tattoo artists are often employed to create meaningful designs for their clients. For Aaron Guillemette from Falls River, Massachusetts, his customer is an eight-year-old who needed her leg braces inked. Hope Laliberte has cerebral palsy and suffers from epilepsy. She had just received new leg braces and wanted them to stand out. Instead of asking for princesses, the little girl wanted two Disney villains: Ursula from The Little Mermaid and Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmatians.

Guillemette and his team at Up in Flames Tattoo worked hard to ensure the artwork would not peel off the braces. It paid off; Hope loves her tattoos so much she hugged Guillemette.

"I knew they would be very special for Hope, because even at that age, kids are so aware of fashion and style. So instead of her being self-conscious about her braces, I thought it would be great for her to be excited and proud about them,” says Guillemette.

The designs were made into labels and glued with polyurethane to ensure they would not come off.

"The look on her face when I gave them to her was worth everything it took to make them," says Guillemette.
