Man gets entire cheek tattooed with portrait of newborn son’s face

A Texas man has found his 15 minutes of internet fame after he posted a photo of his new ink: a portrait of his newborn son’s face.

While that may typically be endearing, this dad decided to get the tattoo on the entire side left side of his face, taking up his whole cheek and part of his ear lobe.

The picture was originally posted to Reddit’s “Trashy” subreddit and the poster took the liberty to track down the Texan’s Facebook page where people left comments like “it’s not funny….you should have put it somewhere else.”

The dad, though, seemed happy with it, writing, “thanks for doing awesome work on me. Looks just like my son.”

The girlfriend of the man (and the baby’s mother) did worry about him finding work with such grandiose ink, but fortunately the man posted in December that he did land a job as a certified electrician.

The man also mentioned in the post that the couple was expecting their second child.
