Big Brother Gets Tattoo Of Little Brother With Down's Syndrome On Arm, He Absolutely Loves It

If you and your siblings can't get along and tend to jump down each other's throats with very little provocation, you could certainly do worse than to take a quick gander at the below video. In this heartwarming tale, a young man with Down's syndrome reacts to seeing his older brother's tattoo for the first time, and it's an absolutely lovely moment, given what the tattoo shows.


It's certainly fair to say that he seems to approve of it.

His brother's new ink showed his brother's head poking out of the mouth of a lion - kinda like that warrior's helmet in the Russell Crow film Gladiator - and the young man was so delighted that he gave his brother a great big kiss and a hug.

Is someone chopping onions in here? Or just me?

It's worth pointing out that the video was originally shared before coronavirus was a thing, and therefore there needed to be no social distancing or anything like that.

The boy's mum, Soares Sheila, posted the pictures and video on to Facebook with the caption: "Look at my puppy's reaction to the beautiful tribute, his face tattooed inside a lion's mouth. The video is EXCITING. That's why I saw Rafa asking Erick to make brave face."

She later added: "My dear friends, when I posted this video I could swear that it would not cause this dimension of sharing that caused.

"THIS IS CALLED GOD. Because he was the cause of the success of this video, because contrary to what many people think, I have never had anything easy in this life, only US and GOD and the closest friends know well what I've already spent in life so Erick is here with us.

"Out of many battles, many approvals, many fights, many defeats, and many victories, but I never gave up on my children. And I won.

"Do you know why? Because God exists yes, just have faith, perseverance and believe that one day everything will solve.

"I swear to all of you that my intention when I posted this video was just to show one more of their episodes.

"Many thanks to all the friends who shared the video of my children, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart to all you guys."

Another added: "One of the most beautiful tattoos I have ever seen".

And a third commented: "I hope that my children are like yours, affectionate with each other, God continue to bless your family."
