There are devoted dads and there is the man who got a tattoo of his son on his face

Most parents are somewhat obsessed with their children. But few express their devotion quite like Christien Sechrist.

The 20-year-old father from Houston tattooed his son Perseus's face on his face last summer.

His Facebook post about it recently went viral on Reddit, where several commentators echoed criticism from Sechrist's friends that the tattoo could put off employers.

But Sechrist has no regrets. He told BuzzFeed that he got the tattoo after Perseus nearly died - and not only has it not put off employers, his son also "loves" it.
