Charles Ramsey is not going quietly into the dark after his heroic rescue of three women who had been imprisoned in the house next door to his own for a decade. Everyone wants to interview him to keep his name alive, but one man has gone a step further.
Stephen Munhollon of Cleveland, Ohio, is a tattoo artist who felt so deeply about Ramsey’s heroism that he wanted to make sure he and everyone who sees him never forgets. He had fellow tattoo artist Rodney Rose tatt Ramsey’s face on his right calf, according to New York Daily News.
Rose was so honored to do the tattoo, he did it for free. He said:
“Throughout this whole crazy week we’ve had in Cleveland, he’s kind of been the face and voice of the city,” Rose, a tattoo artist at 252 Tattoo, said of Ramsey. “He did a great job of representing the city, saying he didn’t want the reward money, to give it to the women, and he also brought humor to a dark situation. He’s an average guy who stepped up to the plate when he needed to, and you gotta respect that.”
What a grand gesture in the name of, well, in the face of, Charles Ramsey. “It’s a little sore, but it looks fantastic,” Munhollon told the Daily News.
Munhollon has 50 tattoos, but his tattoo of Ramsey gets all the attention. Even a group of police officers stopped him to get a picture of his leg.
