Awesome dad gets a tattoo of his son's cancer surgery scar

After undergoing surgery for brain cancer, 8-year-old Gabriel Marshall was left with a scar on the right side of his head. In order to boost his self-confidence, Gabriel's father, Josh Marshall, decided to get a tattoo exactly like his son's scar.  

Images of Josh's tattoo started to gain mass attention on social media after he entered a competition for the St. Baldricks Foundation for the Best Bald Dad of 2016. The competition consists of men who shave their head to raise awareness and funding for childhood cancer and research. "Got my son’s scar tattooed to help his self-confidence," Josh wrote when entering the competition.  This year, Josh and Gabriel came in first place with over 5,000 votes.
"I would like to thank everyone for helping make this happen. It's an honor to be titled 2016's ‪#‎BestBaldDad‬, but the truth is I'm no better then any of the other contestants," Josh wrote on Facebook.

"We are all great fathers that would go to any extent to help our children, so in my eyes we're all winners."  Josh also admits that he had no clue that this picture would go viral. "Wow, I never imagined this picture would blow up like it did," Josh wrote on Facebook.
