A devastating tweet went out very late on the evening of June 6th. Walker Hayes and his family prepared a statement for his fans and the public to allow them in on the news that the baby girl they had been expecting passed away after her birth. Now, not even 20 days later, Walker has gotten a new tattoo in her memory and it’s absolutely beautiful!

When I first saw the news, I couldn’t help but let the tears fall. Walker is an artist that when you listen to his music, you don’t just feel like you know him but his entire family (and he has a big one.)

Only 18 days later Hayes took to Instagram and displayed his brand new tattoo. Are you ready? Grab a tissue.

Thank you @zanependergast_tattoo for this. It is perfect.
