One father from Alberta, Canada, knows exactly what that’s like.

As per reports, Derek Prue Jr. is an 8-year-old boy who was born with a huge birthmark covering a large section of his chest. Though not harmful to him in any way, the mark made his self-conscious and wary about what other kids would say.

Put simply, Derek didn’t want to be different to everybody else, and the birthmark made him stand out.

Little did he know, however, that he had a father who was ready to go to great lengths to ensure that his son never needed to suffer from a lack of confidence again.

Opening up to CBC News, Derek revealed that his dad went out one day and got a giant the tattoo that perfectly matched his son’s birthmark. What’s more, he did it in secret, unveiling it to Derek Jr. one day as he was playing with his sisters in a hotel swimming pool.

Needless to say, Derek was shocked, in the most delightful way possible.
