A tattoo parlor made a little girl happy by inking her fun tattoos in her body. The Ink Wolves Tattoo in Tampa, Florida, decided to do away with its "no kids allowed" policy for 3-year-old Trinity D'Autorio, who is battling with cancer.
Tough Girl Battling With Neuroblastoma
Trinity was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a type of child cancer that usually attacks children around 5 years of age. The condition usually attacks the adrenal glands, but it can also affect other parts of the body where there are groups of nerve cells.
The little girl also has Horner's syndrome, which is characterized by constriction of the pupil, drooping of the eyelid, and absence of sweating of the face as a result of damage to the face's sympathetic nerves.
Trinity also suffers from Harlequin syndrome, an injury to the autonomic nervous system, which is responsible for controlling the body's natural processes such as sweating and skin flushing. It often occurs in conjunction with Horner's syndrome.
Disney Character Tattoos
As Trinity continues to battle with her condition, her mother, Skyla D'Autorio, wanted to cheer her up with something fun and memorable.
Skyla decided to contact the tattoo parlor because Trinity loves her dad's tattoos. She requested the artists at Ink Wolves Tattoo to give her daughter temporary tattoos.
Two employees on their day off tatted Trinity with Disney characters and other fun designs on her arms and legs. Skyla wrote on Facebook that Trinity had the best day.
"Ink Wolves took it upon themselves to get Tattoo markers, practice with them, have 2 artists come in on their day off, have snacks, and even jam out to Disney music for over 4 hours with a 3 year old who is fighting cancer, all while making sure Trinity had the BEST day!"
GoFundMe Campaign To Support Trinity's Treatment
Trinity has undergone surgery, chemotherapies, biopsies, and scans but continues to undergo treatment. Friends have created a GoFundMe campaign to support the family.
"Trinity's fight with childhood cancer is brutal, long and relentless. She has a long road ahead and so does her family. Please help ease the financial stress for this beautiful family. And if you can't donate, please send a prayer." they wrote on the GoFundMe page.
