Heavily tattooed dad faces backlash as people think he is a horrible father – then his wife reveals the truth

The well-known adage “don’t judge a book by its cover” needs to be reminded to people occasionally. It can be really unfair to judge a parent based just on how they look if that is not how you normally picture them.

People called him a bad father after noticing the tattoos on his face. However, his spouse then made a revelation for which no one was ready. Learn more by continuing to read.

Being oneself is fundamentally about expressing yourself. One amazing way that people may express themselves artistically is through tattoos. Richard Huff, 51, has more than 240 tattoos and has chosen to use them as a means of self-expression.

The self-described ink addict is married to a woman and has five children. His spouse frequently shares videos and images of him with their children on social media, but not everyone finds them to be positive.

Huff, 51, wants everyone to know that their family is “no different” from any other family. However, he has disclosed that he is often the target of internet jeers due to his appearance.


He described his own beginnings. Huff remarked, “I started with my legs and worked my way up; it became an addiction.” He revealed that he currently has tattoos covering 85% of his body. His daughter’s lips and the names of his children are among the tattoos.

“I want to be 100% covered in tattoos probably within the next four years,” shared Richard. “I don’t know if it’s the pain or the artwork that you put on you, but it just becomes fascinating when you’re able to do this.”

He shared that having so many tattoos brings with it its own set of problems. He shared how children at his kids’ school found him scary. His daughter shared, “They say, ’ah it’s a bit scary’ and I say ’no, my dad is not scary, he is good with tattoos.’”

As for his wife Marita, she revealed that she was scared of Richard as well. She said, “I did judge Richard based on his looks at first but as I got to know him a little bit, he is actually a big-hearted person.”

She often posts about her husband and how he loves her in a way no one before him has. She often talks about all the positives and how he is a wonderful husband and father. Marita had three children from previous relationships and has shared how Richard is the more than a real father to his kids as he has stepped for them tremendously.

Richard shared, “I participate in the PTA, I go to all my kids’ functions.”
