Dad Gets One Direction Tattoo to Win Concert Tickets, Loses Because He's From Wrong State

Because he lives in Tennessee, Roger Fraser was not eligible to win the contest.

— -- This man might be the coolest dad ever.

Roger Fraser couldn't afford to take his two daughters to One Direction's concert in Indianapolis, Indiana, on July 31, so he decided to do whatever it took to win an Indianapolis radio station's contest for tickets.

"I'm known by all my friends for doing crazy stuff for whatever it takes to get a laugh," Fraser, 37, told ABC News.

The contest, held by 99.5 WZPL in Indianapolis, had dads dress up as One Direction's biggest fan. When someone else had already done their original idea of taking a photo of posing Fraser surrounded by One Direction memorabilia, Fraser decided to get a tattoo.

"In the beginning, everybody said I was crazy for getting it," Fraser, who lives in Columbia, Tennessee, with his daughters, said. "I just said I'll get a heart with no color so I can cover it later."

"My friends said, 'My dad would never do that," Makayla, 14, told ABC News.

Fraser, who has three other tattoos, said he got the tattoo of One Direction's logo on his right arm two weeks ago. Except, there was one problem: Makayla didn't read the contest's fine print.

"The day he got the tattoo that's when he said, 'I hope it's not one of those contests where you have to be a resident of the state," Makayla said.

The next day, Makayla saw that the contest rules said entrants had to be permanent residents of Indiana, which meant they were ineligible to win.

Though they didn't win the tickets, Fraser said he has no regrets and wants to keep the tattoo forever.

"After doing this I realized to myself that we spend a whole lot of time together [doing things I like to do]. But I got involved with something that they love," Fraser said. "And it's brought us together even closer than we ever were."

Fraser and his daughters still got to attend the concert in Indianapolis. They drove from Tennessee to Indianapolis without tickets but were able to purchase them just as the show was starting.

"We didn't get to meet One Direction. We didn't go on stage or get front row," Fraser said. "But the reward has been all the memories that we've made."
