Touching tribute: Chinese man tattoos dead mother's face on his back

A man tattooed his deceased mother's face on his back in northern China. Video captured in the city of Xi'an in Shaanxi Province on November 13 shows a tattoo artist named Zhang applying his customer's deceased mother's face on his back as requested. She is smiling. It took Zhang around three and a half hours to finish it. Zhang said mothers always carry their children on their backs, which inspired him to design the tattoo of a son carrying his mother instead to protect her. The video was provided by local media with permission.
