The #LuckyFewTattoo has been sweeping the nation in recent months. Started by mothers of children with Down syndrome to symbolize their journey, the tattoo is now popular with fathers, siblings, educators, extended family members and advocates who have all found great joy and feel their lives are better through their connection to someone with Down syndrome.
The three arrows symbolize the three copies of the 21st chromosome our loved ones with Down syndrome have and how we rise up and move forward when we face challenges. We fly the highest after we have been pulled back and stretched, sometimes even more we think we can bear.
Mica May launched the tattoo in honor of her son Jackson who is rocking an extra chromosome. She says «the tattoo is a physical symbol that there are thousands of people in this community that are advocating, fighting for, challenging, and shouting the worth of people with Down syndrome.”
