23-year-old man with autism gets long-awaited tattoo after multiple shops turn him away

BERMERTON, Wash. (WSVN) — A 23-year-old man with autism had wanted a tattoo for years. But when his mom took him to get one done, they kept getting turned away.

“As a child he loved the fake ones and would freak out when they washed off,” Sandi Green told KTVU about her son, who goes by the nickname ‘Buzz.’

Green says her son repeatedly asked to get a tattoo over the years, but she told him he’d have to wait until he was older. Although she say she doesn’t care for tattoos herself, Green decided to make Buzz’s dream a reality for his 23rd birthday.

After consulting with her son’s doctor, who supported the idea, Green took Buzz to local tattoo shops, only to either be turned away or quoted high prices.

She said she understood why the shops hesitated, noting that her son is 6’3″ and 200 pounds, and it was unclear how he would respond to the tattoo process.

They continued to search for shops, until meeting with tattoo artist Pat Masga at Northwest Inkorporated.

Masga said that since Buzz was so sure he wanted the tattoo, the least he could do was try.
