A video of a man showing his younger brother who has Down syndrome a tattoo of his sibling has gone viral for all the right reasons.
The artwork features the face of his younger brother in the mouth of a lion.
After seeing the tattoo for the first time it was obvious that he loved it, thanking his brother with a hug and a kiss.
The reaction, which has gone viral on social media, was filmed by their mother Soares Sheila from Rio de Janeiro and uploaded to Facebook.
In the caption, she praised her boys, Rafa and Erick, for their remarkable connection and friendship.
Look at my puppy's reaction to the beautiful tribute, his face tattooed inside a lion's mouth. The video is EXCITING. That's why I saw Rafa asking Erick to make brave face.
My dear friends, when I posted this video I could swear that it would not cause this dimension of sharing that caused.
THIS IS CALLED GOD. Because he was the cause of the success of this video, because contrary to what many people think, I have never had anything easy in this life, only US and GOD and the closest friends know well what I've already spent in life so Erick is here with us.
Our many battles, many approvals, many fights, many defeats, and many victories, but I never gave up on my children. And I won.
Do you know why? Because God exists yes, just have faith, perseverance and believe that one day everything will solve.
I swear to all of you that my intention when I posted this video was just to show one more of their episodes.
Many thanks to all the friends who shared the video of my children, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart to all you guys.
