Firefighter Sam shows off his ink.


I found this great photo on a blog called; it chronicles the life of 4 year old Sam & his love of the fire service.

Until Sam turns 18 the temporary maltese cross tattoo will have to do. The real one though belongs to Firefighter Ashley Abt who is with the Apex Fire Department in North Carolina. Ashley's tattoo was inked at Warlock's Tattoo in Raleigh, NC.


Sam's Dad provided this description of Sam & his website:

"Sam is just your typical four-year-old little boy who fell in love with all things fire related when he was about 2 1/2 years old. We used to pass by a fire station every day and he would always ask if we could stop and look at the trucks. Finally one day I gave in, and it's been an obsession ever since.

We visit various fire departments and related events at least a few times each month. About a year ago I decided to start a blog, , to keep up with all of his adventures. In the last year, I've chronicled all of his escapades, like riding in a fire engine , having water fights, manning a hose at live burns and becoming a model for a kids costume company."
