LARGO, Fla. – A father is making his mark on the human landscape as the owner of 3rd Eye Tattoo, a shop in Largo, Florida.

He is an artist so others said it was no surprise when his 4-year-old daughter, Chloe, starting drawing at a young age.

“She had come in a few times, watched other artists and myself doing the art, and she said, ‘I want to do one.’ So I gave her the chance,” Brad Bellomo told Bay News 9.

Yes, Bellomo allowed his 4-year-old daughter to leave her permanent  mark on him.

Chloe inked a strawberry on her dad’s arm because “it was cute.”

Bellomo posted photos on Facebook and the post quickly went viral, getting both good and bad comments.

“A lot of it is just someone saying that it’s bad parenting,” Bellomo said in response to the posts. “I’m not trying to push her into a career, but it’s an opportunity where she could do a few tatts, get good at it. Maybe an after school job versus working at McDonald’s.”

So how does Chloe feel about it?

“I like to paint my daddy,” she said.
