Calgary mom transforms tattoo in support of transgender son


CALGARY – A Calgary mom has covered up a tattoo of her daughter with a tattoo of her son, after Ace Peace came out as transgender to his family almost a year ago.

Ace didn’t like his mom’s original tattoo, because it didn’t represent his true gender identity.

In a symbolic gesture, Ace’s mom surprised her son with the tattoo transformation.

The original ink had a little girl with pigtails in a dress and a bow; the new tattoo replaces the bow with a slingshot and the dress with a T-shirt and shorts. The pigtails are gone.

Watch above as Jill Croteau reports on a story that reaffirms a mother’s support and belief in her son.
