Every Friday, This Tattoo Artist Does Something Sweet For This Woman With Down Syndrome

Suzie Barrie goes to her local tattoo parlour every week to get a new, stick-on tattoo.

Jason Ward, a tattoo artist from Muscle & Ink Tattoo in New Zealand, has touched the hearts of thousands after a photo of him applying a stick-on tattoo to a woman with Down Syndrome was uploaded on Facebook.

Suzie Barrie walks in every friday and is treated just like any other customer - with Jason putting on his gloves and cleaning her skin like he is preparing for a regular tattoo.

The first time she came in, she just walked in, slapped a couple of stick-on tattoo packets on the desk and asked me to put them on her arm. I said, 'what?' And she said it again so I sat her down and put them on... But if she was a member of my family and she had have walked into another tattoo shop and they had told her to bugger off, I'd be angry. Why would you say no? You should treat everybody the same.
...there are people in the community that you can do this for. It's great that people want to do something for Suzie, but they could look a little closer to home. If you just do one thing for one person everyday that makes them smile, then that's your day. If everybody does that then everybody's smiling.
