Dan Tucker defies the odds in Whangarei
By Dan Tucker
Hi my name is Dan. I am 25 years old.
On 18 January this year, I died for the first time. I gave my family a very big scare.
While I was still in hospital one of my sisters asked Mum if she would get the Lucky Few Tattoo. She also asked my other sister.
When they decided to go and get one done after I was out of hospital, I asked if I could have one too. So we all went together and got them done.
I was very brave and it didn’t hurt too much.
Getting the tattoo is my greatest thing ever because other people need to believe in themselves.
The three chevrons mean love heart and soul.
I have a loving mother and family who do care about me.
Here is a photo of our tattoos.
Dan Tucker has congenital heart condition and his heart stopped earlier this year.
