Tuesday, June 21, 2016
An Alvin tattoo artist’s act of kindness has captured the hearts of hundreds of people on social media. It all started when Joe Figueroa posted a photo on Facebook.
The young man in the photo with Figueroa is 20-year-old Jacob Robicheaux. Jacob’s mom, Cathy said Jacob was born with Down Syndrome, but has always wanted a tattoo.
« His older sisters have tattoos and so does his brother-in-law and his sister’s boyfriend, » said Cathy Robicheaux.
Robicheaux did some research on the Talk of Alvin Facebook page to find a tattoo artist willing to give her son a fake tattoo. Robicheaux said Figueroa, who is a tattoo artist at I.P.ink was the first to respond directly to her request.
Figueroa came into work on his day off in order to give Jacob some ink.
