A woman shared her father's sweet reaction after she showed him the tattoo she had gotten to honor him.

In a TikTok video, Isabel explained that after her father had received a somber diagnosis from his doctor, she decided to design a tattoo dedicated to him, so that no matter what happens in the future, they will always be together.

She surprised her dad with a tattoo of their favorite memory so he would never forget her.

In Isabel's video, she filmed the moment that she surprised her father with a tattoo that she had gotten for him. "So, I got a tattoo and it's actually for you. I designed it a couple of months ago when I was at school," Isabel began in her video, speaking directly to her dad.

She informed viewers in overlay text on the screen that she had gotten the tattoo following her father's diagnosis of Alzheimer’s. "I’ve really wanted to get it. I hope that Mom can get a matching version," she continued.

Isabel then unveiled the tattoo that she had been covering with her hand, which is an outline of two waves followed by the number 52. She explained to her father that the number is his birth year, and the two waves represent them both.

She proceeded to ask him if he knew why she got two waves, and when her father answered that it was because he liked them, Isabel agreed before recalling one of her favorite memories with him. "It's because we went sailing and you taught me how to sail. Ever since I was little, that's my favorite memory with you."

"I had it on my arm because it'll never fade and you'll always remember it. Every time you see me, it'll always remind you of us, and when you were born, and the memories you helped make with me. It's my favorite one."
