It's been nearly five months since Mark Wiezorek lost his daughter in a tragic accident.

He is now honoring his late daughter, Lexi Wiezorek in a special, but permanent way.

Wiezorek got a portrait tattoo of Lexi on his back Friday from tattoo artist and owner of Tauristic Tattoos, Travis Stark.

Wiezorek says it's something he's been wanting to get ever since the tragedy, but it was just too soon.

"It took a while to build up the nerve to get myself into this position where I was ready to do it. But this is a big thing for me. This is my own memorial. She ain't ever going to leave, she will always be with me," said Wiezorek.

"The fact that I can bless him with a piece; words just can't even describe it and that is awesome!" said Stark.

The tattoo is a reminder of how Lexi always had her father's back.

Wiezorek says he is thankful for the support he's received over the last five months and asks people to never forget his daughter and keep her in their prayers.
