Breck Pipes decided to get a tattoo with a purpose. When his 7 year old son, Winslow, recently got his Ponto Pro Power, Breck made a deal to get one of his own.
Breck wanted to connect with Winslow and help to overcome his anxiety about having the surgery for something permanent. Now, Winslow won’t be the only one answering when someone asks, “What’s that thing?”
As Ann Pipes, Breck’s wife and Winslow’s mom put it, “Those two are constantly scheming and making plans!”
