Tattoo Artist Turns 8 Year-Old Girl’s Dull Leg Braces Into Colorful Disney Villains

A tattoo artist in Fall River, Massachusetts helped a little girl feel proud to wear leg braces by outfitting them with a set of spectacular Disney designs.

“I’m glad to be in a position where I can help the community in any way,” Aaron Guillemette told Today. “When I was first approached about designing Hope’s braces, I thought it would be an awesome idea — especially when I heard what the subject matter would be. Hope wanted Disney villains on her braces, not princesses.”

Hope was born premature at 24 weeks and has been wearing leg braces for the past four years.

When she first saw her new braces? “I screamed,” she told the news outlet.

The experience was special for Guillemette too, as he told Today Parents, “The look on her face when I gave them to her was worth everything it took to make them.”
