A young father has commemorated the birth of his son by getting a life-sized tattoo of the baby on his face.

Christien Sechrist, 20, from Houston shocked friends and family when he posted the picture of his "awesome" tattoo of baby Perseus on Facebook.

He wrote: "Thanks Cody Gibbs for doing awesome work on me! Looks just like my son."

He didn't get the reaction he was hoping for, however, as one friend commented: "Why on your f***ing face?! How are you ever going to get a real f***ing job to support your son with a tattoo on your face?"

Sechrist, who also has a large tattoo on the other side of his head (see below), had no regrets.

He explained that his son almost died last year and that inspired him to get the tattoo on his face.

And, despite the concerns of the Facebook commenters, the tattoo hasn't put employers off.
