Tattoo Artist Proposes to Girlfriend With Checkbox Tattoo

This Guy Proposed With a Real Tattoo, and the Internet Is Freaking Out

When Vinny Capaldo-Smith decided it was time to pop the big question to his girlfriend, Brooke Wodark, he hid quite the unique proposal stunt up his sleeve — or rather, up his pant leg. A tattoo artist in Colorado, Vinny tricked his girlfriend into thinking that he simply wanted her to tattoo a heart on his ankle. But just as Brooke almost began applying the permanent red ink, he lifted the leg of his shorts to reveal another tattoo that spelled out his marriage proposal.

The thigh tattoo depicted a stick-figure couple with a "Love" balloon, and below them, the text read "Will you marry me?" along with "yes" and "no" checkboxes. As soon as Brooke took in the surprise and saw the gorgeous ring Vinny presented to her, she burst into tears and immediately checked off her response, which we're sure you can guess.
