A tattoo is not the typical birthday gift for a 90-year-old, but that is exactly what one man from Wayne received.  
Frank Niader recently went under the needle to get the skin art in honor of his late brother - a soldier killed during World War II.
His brother William, was just 18 years old when he lost his life while serving as a U.S. Marine.
A tattoo artist was at Frank's surprise 90th birthday in Brick earlier this month. "My two nieces said they were going to have a birthday party for me down the shore, so they took me down the shore to Brick. They said we are gonna give you a tattoo for your 90th birthday and it is gonna honor your brother. So I got the tattoo there and it was no problem," says Niader. Frank was 14 years old when his brother was killed in action and he says he has been honoring him ever since.
