Man With Autism Finally Gets His Dream Tattoo and Its Adorable

This story is about Buzz, a 23-year-old guy who was diagnosed with autism, and how he got his dream tattoo for years.

For many years, Buzz wanted to get a tattoo. But, most of the tattoo parlors they went to denied to ink him.

According to her mom, he Buzz loved wearing fake tattoos as a child, and he would freak out when the ink is washed off. She mentioned that her son repeatedly asked her to get an actual one. But she told him he probably has to wait until he was a little bit older, which he did.

The time of the tattoo parlor hunting came on Buzz’s 23rd birthday, but the majority of the parlors Buzz and his mom went to either rejected him or demanded ridiculously high prices.

Not harboring any ill feeling, Buzz’s mom said that she totally understands where those tattoo parlors are coming from. Her son weighs about 200 pounds and is 6’3’’ tall. Actually, it was a normal reaction as they never really know how Buzz would react to the needle.

So they continued searching for the one tattoo artist who will finally give him the tattoo he’s been dying to have as a child. After a few more rejections, they finally ended up meeting Pat Masga of Northwest Inkorporated.

Masga mentioned that when Buzz arrived, he was wearing a broad smile on his face. He felt that it was impossible for him to turn down this excited customer. He knew from the moment he met Buzz that he needs to get his tattoo done no matter what.

Very opposite to what his mom expected, Buzz quietly sat like a champ waiting for his tattoo and didn’t quit.

He got Tommy, a character from the Nickelodeon show “The Rugrats”, tattooed on his right bicep. Masga wrote on Facebook about his remarkable encounter on his shop’s FB page, and it immediately went viral. It generated over 165K shares and 377K likes, and it seems like the numbers are not going to stop anytime soon.
