He wanted them in his heart and in the dermis layer of his skin.

    That’s what I call commitment. Odd, but it obviously means a lot to him. God bless the family.

  2. Tyler says:

    What happens when the little girl grows up and the tattoo looks nothing like her?

  3. phil says:

    Something odd about this….yes its a little weird about the tattoos; but more the fact that the guy must have been mowing the lawn with some sleeves on, or hazmat gloves! It’s a reverse farmers tan! What the hell?

    • regan says:

      he has ‘bronzer’ on his back and they didnt do his arms (because they’re obviously not very bright). maybe they thought it would enhance the tats…

  4. Annie says:

    Why did he put them on his back where he cannot see them?

  5. ash917 says:

    Cause that’s not awkward at all…

  6. Ann says:

    I will say for once someone appears to have went to a reputable artist since the portraits don’t look like muppets. But he should know that tatting a living non-blood relative is a curse. I’d love to see the post divorce cover up.

  7. Jr says:

    Darnit Lisa, the kids put their faces next to their tattoo, be a good sport.

  8. Henrik says:

    What’s on the front? His parents?

  9. LJack says:

    He really loves his family but I guess nobody in the family loves him enough to rub sunscreen on his back.

  10. JT says:

    Um, what happens if he has another kid? :P

  11. JerseyPam says:

    No butt about it, this man loves his family.

  12. Palpatina says:

    I thought the first rule of ink was never to have your spouse’s name done. I guess it doesn’t count with picture.

  13. Cubby says:

    Could he be a Frank Sinatra impersonator?

    I’ve got you under my skin
    I’ve got you deep in the heart of me
    So deep in my heart that you’re really a part of me
    I’ve got you under my skin

  14. Mental Mouse says:

    Impressive portraits indeed — but when Daniella is 20, the portrait will still be of her at 9 or whatever.

  15. Brandy says:

    I’ve seen this picture before! It was in the news because the guy’s wife left him for a much younger man, after he’d spent all that money & time having her face tattooed on his back!

    • Anne says:


      • Right Winger says:

        I concur. I saw the picture before too. The strange thing is that the wife had another picture taken with her new dude and she was wearing the same top in both pictures!

    • Tricia says:

      Brandy is right! I looked it up using the names & “tattoo” and it is a sad story. There’s even a picture of her with her 25 year old Latvian lover standing in the same spot & she’s wearing the same thing! You’ve gotta think that the hubby maybe had an inkling things were going South, so he got tatted up in an effort to keep her. Unfortunately for him, it didn’t work & now he will have trouble finding his own new love. Can you imagine what’ll happen when New Girl sees him at the beach?

    • JenW says:

      Apparently it’s not as bad as it sounds. Their marriage was going downhill before he even got the tattoo (they’d been keeping it up for the sake of the chidlren), and she’d tried to dissuade him from getting it. Supposedly, the boyfriend didn’t come along until after they’d separated, and Tattooed Dad says the boyfriend is good to the kids and they all get along now.

    • MvV says:

      The last paragraph in the Daily Mail article is about how he’s not going to have the tattoo removed because “there’s plenty of space on my chest if I ever hook up again”. No lessons learned, apparently;)
      Also, I wonder where he’s going to find a woman who’ll be ok with him having his ex’s face tattood on his back..

    Wadda ya want, the shirt off my back?!? Here, HAVE the shirt off my back!

  17. Harry says:

    Nobody finds this, shall we say, over the top? Interesting.

  18. Andrea says:

    Those are the some of the best portrait tattoos I have seen. Usually they don’t look like the people – these actually do! Great work!

  19. Baggs says:

    You should see the tattoo of his twin boys [not shown].

  20. MM says:

    That will make for some awkward office parties. “Hey Joe! Did I show you the picture of my kids?”

  21. LKT says:

    And to think I tell my hubby NOT to let the kids get under his skin!

  22. Becky says:

    WHY is his back so much darker than his arms, too? He has a reverse farmer’s tan.

  23. Jay Stemple says:

    Maybe this isnt real because they will look different in 20 years but the tattoo will remain.

  24. Kitty says:

    It’s hard to see all that ink with that sunburn on his back!

  25. charlene says:

    Well, he won’t ever be able to complain about them being on his back. He put them there permanently!

  26. Kathy says:

    I presume they needled him into doing it.

  27. Oli says:

    Well when Daniella(sp?) with the glasses starts bringing boys home….thats gonna be awkward.

    Lisa: Nice to finally meet you young man. Here is my husband Jack. Want to see a childhood image of Daniella? Honey, lift your shirt and kneel for the boy.

  28. Bequi says:

    Why is his back so much tanner than his arms?

    In ask fairness, though, that tattoo artist did a great job.

  29. Fab Candyfloss says:

    there is no space for a fourth person. I hope she doesn’t get pregnant… ;)

  30. Deb says:

    “I want you under my skin. I just don’t want to have to see it.”

  31. MommyOf2 says:

    Why is his back so tan and his arms so pale? I’ve seen tan arms and pale back from wearing tee shirts in the sun, but this is a new one! Also, what would he do if they had another child– there’s no more room for another face on the back… someone would feel very, very left out! LOL! In all seriousness, he looks like a good dad who really loves his family. You go, dad!

  32. Judging by his reverse farmer tan, he apparently has special backless shirts made to show off his awesome tat.

  33. Kat says:

    Well, that’s sweet, good excuse not to have anymore children, there’s no more room on his back.

  34. Karen says:

    I guess this way he doesnt have to carry a photo album with family pix around!

  35. Sarah says:

    I think it’s cOol…also very well done too.

  36. Mary says:

    That is actually really great work!

  37. Lisa says:

    Make it stop! Make it stoooop!

  38. Slolo420 says:

    Hilarious that he got their names tattooed on as well .. easier to tell which kid is which that way.
