Roger Fraser, a father of two girls in Tennessee, got a One Direction tattoo permanently inked on his right arm in an attempt to win concert tickets for his daughter. Indianapolis radio station WZPL held a contest for dads to prove they were One Direction’s biggest fan, and the winner would get free seats to the band’s July 31 show. To prove his fandom, Fraser got a “I [Heart] 1D” tattoo on his arm, only to find out that out-of-state residents were ineligible to win. See photos below!

Fraser’s 14-year-old daughter convinced him to enter the radio contest, but she didn’t pay close attention to the rules, which stated that only residents of Indiana could enter. Unfortunately, Fraser had already gotten a tattoo of One Direction’s logo on his upper arm before discovering the conditions of the contest.

The story, however, does have a happy ending. Not only does Fraser have no regrets about getting the tattoo, and plans to keep it forever, but he and his daughters still got to attend the concert. The family had to drive from Tennessee to Indianapolis and purchase tickets themselves, but they still got to witness their favorite band perform live.

Fraser posted Twitter photos of his One Direction tattoo, along with the caption, “got this tattoo to help my daughter win a contest well lol we can’t win because we are not a resident!!!!!” Check out the pictures below, and tell us what you think.
