Big Brother Gets a Tattoo of Little Brother With Down’s Syndrome, He Loves it

Can you feel what it’s like to have a sibling? The bond between two brothers or any two siblings is strong as is, but when one of them suffers from an illness that changes their entire life, the bond can become even stronger.

Some tattoos are trivial or petty but this one definitely isn’t. According to one article, “These guys charmed the internet after the elder sibling showed the younger his latest tattoo, which happens to be him wearing a lion’s head.”

“It’s a cliché thing to say but it’s true, blood is thicker than water. You can pick your friends but family is for life. If you are fortunate to be born into a family with a good structure and a tight bond, it sets you on the right path no matter what circumstances you face. Siblings, in particular, can have the effect on each other’s life – especially when you’re the eldest, such is the case with these two brothers from Rio de Janerio.”

That’s right, the footage shows Rafa revealing to his little brother Erick, who suffers from Down’s syndrome, a tattoo on his arm of his face with a triumphant lion on his head.

Soares Sheila, the mother of the boys took the video and photos, uploading them to Facebook a couple months ago. In the caption online, you could feel the real, true joy coming from the family.

The face on the brother is priceless and full of joy, as he takes in every detail of his big brother’s tattoo. It is plain to see it means a lot to him.

The video on social media was captioned by their mother:

“Look at my puppy’s reaction to the beautiful tribute, his face tattooed inside a lion’s mouth. The video is EXCITING. That’s why I saw Rafa asking Erick to make brave face.”

In another post to follow that up, she continued:

“My dear friends, when I posted this video I could swear that it would not cause this dimension of sharing that caused.

THIS IS CALLED GOD. Because he was the cause of the success of this video, because contrary to what many people think, I have never had anything easy in this life, only US and GOD and the closest friends know well what I’ve already spent in life so Erick is here with us.

Out many battles, many approvals, many fights, many defeats, and many victories, but I never gave up on my children. And I won.

Do you know why? Because God exists yes, just have faith, perseverance and believe that one day everything will solve.

I swear to all of you that my intention when I posted this video was just to show one more of their episodes.

Many thanks to all the friends who shared the video of my children, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart to all you guys.”

It’s a crisis that autism seems to be rising the way it is. No matter what happens to people however, the heart within them can survive or even become more strong.
