The world is so vast and, yet, I’m constantly amazed by how deeply connected we all are to one another. A story shared by TikTok user beckaroo is the perfect example. Years ago, their beloved grandma passed away. She absolutely adored her 2003 Subaru Forester. That’s why, just a year ago, they decided to get a Subaru tattoo in honor of Grandma Jean.

Choosing who to give such an important tattoo, I imagine, isn’t easy. But while scrolling on the Instagram discover page, beckaroo came across an artist they particularly loved. From there, they found the artist’s contact info and sent him an email.
In the tattoo artist’s reply, he not only agrees to do it, he expresses that he’s “stoked,” noting that he owns his own 2003 green Subaru Forester. Could there have been a better person for the job?
The answer was no, of course, but neither of them realized just how perfect the match was until this loving grandchild arrived for their appointment. When they did, they discovered the tattoo artist’s car out front. Within seconds of inspecting it, they knew it was Grandma Jean’s old car.

The biggest giveaway? The sticker on the back that reads “Clarity is Power.” Grandma chose this sticker because Clarity was her maiden name.
Needless to say, beckaroo became overwhelmed with emotion, feeling as though this moment was meant to be. A video documenting their experience has gone viral with someone pointing out that this experience takes Subaru’s slogan, “love — it’s what makes a Subaru a Subaru,” to the next level.
What are the odds? As many folks have pointed out, it really does feel as though this was Grandma Jean’s way to approve of her sweet grandchild’s tattoo.
“Thanks for the wild lore, Grandma!” they wrote on TikTok.
