A Texas man identified only as “Chris” marked the occasion of his new fatherhood by marking his face.

An expansive black-and-white tattooed portrait of his new son now covers the left side of his head. It’s wild. Here’s how he showed it off on social media:

Before you react with shock and horror, you should know that Chris has something of a penchant for face tattoos. Here’s what the opposite side of his head looks like when he’s not wearing a hat.



The instant criticism over any tattoo that even approaches facial prominence is that the wearer becomes instantly unemployable. And this is a face tattoo of another face entirely. But rest easy—Chris became a certified electrician in December.

Starcasm tracked down Chris’s Facebook page and shares this comment from his girlfriend. She wants her boyfriend to grow up and stop getting face tattoos:

No he I’d NOT tattooing anymore of his face this is why I didn’t want to have another kid and it jynxed us. But were going to try our best I guess and TRY to respect each other. I love chris with all my f***ing heart and I love this family. But I want us to be a happy and honest family for once and I’m hoping this child will be a girl so it will make him grow up a Lil bit more lol [sic]

We’ll see how that goes.
