There's a tattoo news story making international rounds that is so sweet, I couldn't wait to post until our next news review. It's a story about how Calgary-based tattoo artist Steve Peace lovingly transformed a portrait tattoo of one of his three children, Ace, on his wife to best capture Ace's identity (as shown above).

As Steve wrote on Facebook, "As our oldest child Ace is FTM transgender we need to update the tattoo to fully represent who he is in his happy new awesome life." The original portrait, which was tattooed before Ace had come out as trans, depicted a girl in pigtails and a pink dress with a purple bow. The revamped tattoo shows Ace in a tee and shorts, with the bow changed to a slingshot.

Ace told Global News about his mom, "It made me really happy, I didn't realize how much she believed me. It finally fits."
