Tattooed Papa - Sam from Mad Lads Mum and Dad

Welcome to our second Tattooed Mama and Papa interview! so lets kick things off and meet our Tattooed Papa .........................

Tell us about yourself

Sam (@dadofmadlads), 33 from Kent. Married to Emma (@mumofmadlads). Have 2 mad lads. Eden, 3 and Xander, 1. I LOVE tattoos!

How many tattoos do you have?

I have 2 full arm sleeves. 1 across my chest and one on my back. 

What was the first tattoo you got and why did you have it done ?

A big star on the back of each arm. They’ve now been lost in my sleeves. Embarrassingly I got them because I wanted to be a rockstar. I was young! Cringe! 

If you’ve got more than one tattoo which is your favourite and why?

My favourite tatt is the portrait of my wife because it’s a beautiful image to have on me forever! I also love the words on my chest. It is a lyric from my wife’s favourite song and the song I proposed to her to at a live concert and our first dance at our wedding.

How do others react to your tattoos?

I’ve never had anyone say they don’t like them but then I guess people wouldn’t say that even if they thought it. Most people are very complimentary and I often get asked about them.

Do you regret any of your tattoos and if so why?

I have our wedding date in Roman numerals on my wrist. It was done really badly and has faded so doesn’t look great!

Are you planning on getting anymore tattoos, if yes what are you planning and why?

I want loads more. I want background for my current chest piece and a full back piece. Ribs too. Possibly hands but still undecided. Honestly the reason is because I love them, I’m probably addicted!

Is there anything else you’d like to tell us about your tattoos?

My sleeves have themes. One sleeve is nautical themed because I love the traditional nautical tattoo style. As mentioned above I have a portrait of my wife in this sleeve too. My other sleeve is themed based on my kids names. Half is the garden of Eden and the other half is Xander the Great. I also love pin up tattoos and have pin up girls incorporated within both sleeves.

Thank you to Sam for sharing his tattoos with us, I love the portrait of his wife!  Sam blogs over on Mad Lads Mum and Dad, and you can follow him over on Instagram.

Are you a Mama or a Papa with tattoos?! Want to take part in my interview series?!  Then I'd love to hear from you!!
