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.
What happens when the little girl grows up and the tattoo looks nothing like her?
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?
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…
Why did he put them on his back where he cannot see them?
Cause that’s not awkward at all…
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.
Exactly. How do people not know that?
Darnit Lisa, the kids put their faces next to their tattoo, be a good sport.
What’s on the front? His parents?
Ha! Love it!!!!
No. The backs of the girl’s heads.
He really loves his family but I guess nobody in the family loves him enough to rub sunscreen on his back.
He kind of has a reverse farmers tan going there.
Um, what happens if he has another kid?
Lol it would be a baby face next o Lisa right below Jade..lol
No butt about it, this man loves his family.
I thought the first rule of ink was never to have your spouse’s name done. I guess it doesn’t count with picture.
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
Impressive portraits indeed — but when Daniella is 20, the portrait will still be of her at 9 or whatever.
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!
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!
Both photos were clearly taken at the same time, probably by a news photographer for a story.
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?
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.
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!
Nobody finds this, shall we say, over the top? Interesting.
I agree. This is extremely peculiar.
maybe….that….is…..why…..it….is….on….AWKWARD family photos? …..just say’n
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!
You should see the tattoo of his twin boys [not shown].
That will make for some awkward office parties. “Hey Joe! Did I show you the picture of my kids?”
Bwah ha ha!
And to think I tell my hubby NOT to let the kids get under his skin!
WHY is his back so much darker than his arms, too? He has a reverse farmer’s tan.
i was thinking the same thing!
Haha..I was going to comment the exact same thing, too
Probably spent a of time on the beach lying on his belly with his arms stretched out in front of him to show off the (awesome) tattoo.
Maybe this isnt real because they will look different in 20 years but the tattoo will remain.
Makes perfect sense.
It’s hard to see all that ink with that sunburn on his back!
Well, he won’t ever be able to complain about them being on his back. He put them there permanently!
I presume they needled him into doing it.
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.
Why is his back so much tanner than his arms?
In ask fairness, though, that tattoo artist did a great job.
there is no space for a fourth person. I hope she doesn’t get pregnant…
Guess they just have to put #4 further down….
“I want you under my skin. I just don’t want to have to see it.”
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!
Judging by his reverse farmer tan, he apparently has special backless shirts made to show off his awesome tat.
Well, that’s sweet, good excuse not to have anymore children, there’s no more room on his back.
I guess this way he doesnt have to carry a photo album with family pix around!
I think it’s cOol…also very well done too.
That is actually really great work!
Make it stop! Make it stoooop!
Hilarious that he got their names tattooed on as well .. easier to tell which kid is which that way.
