When his son Kai was four years old, Peterborough, Ontario-based father Keith Anderson got an arm tattoo of one of the boy’s drawings. Every year since then, Anderson has had another of Kai’s drawings tattooed on his right arm (save the drawing for Kai’s ninth year, which the boy vetoed on artistic grounds). Recently Kai–now 11–has even done some of the tattoo work on his father’s arm. You can see Anderson’s tattoos–which range from a daisy to a seahorse–in this heartwarming portrait series by photographer Chance Faulkner. Anderson told Faulkner that the tattoos will continue as long as Kai is interested in the project.
