This artist gave sick kids some badass 'tattoos', because why the hell not?

Bet you didn’t think something could be heart-warming and totally bitchin’ at the same time, did you?

In a bid to help the sick kids at his local hospital, New Zealand airbrush artist Benjamin Lloyd promised that if his Facebook status reached 50 likes, he would give temporary tattoos to all of the patients residing in its halls.

It was a pretty low target (for us anyway. We get that for selfie, or even a check-in. We’re very popular), and he wasn’t surprised to find that the likes quickly racked up. He was surprised, however, by the fact that the number just kept on climbing. And climbing. Until he reached 400,000 likes.

The pressure was on.

Needless to say, the experienced airbrush artist duly delivered, posting the pictures on Facebook and writing: “Nothing brings me more joy than boosting kids’ confidence with a custom tattoo. The only bad thing is that they don’t want to take a shower afterwards.”

Awwwwww. Ewwwwww.

Check out the pictures of the rad kids below.
