Teen Mom star Cory Wharton has a portrait of his 2-year-old daughter Mila on his forearm.
“Finally some new ink that I’ve been wanting for a long time,” Wharton bullied via Instagram on August 18. “It’s time.”
“We added Mila. Love you girl,” he said in another Post.
The MTV “Challenge” star went to Frank Sanchez at the INKSLINGERS in Los Angeles.
“Got a little done today 😁 We’ve added @milamaewharton to the collection,” Wharton wrote via Instagram. “I love you so much baby girl and no matter what happens just know that your daddy will always be there for you and LOVE YOU.”
“You’re growing up sooo fast, I’m really just trying to enjoy you as a toddler, but I love watching you grow🌻 and I know you’re not the ‘baby’ anymore since Maya is here,” he added added. “I want to thank @frank310 for bringing my vision to life.”
The last tattoo showed Mila grinning. The tattoo artists added some monarch butterflies to complete the portrait.
Wharton, 31, is the father of three daughters. He shares his oldest, 5-year-old Ryder, with his ex, Cheyenne Floyd. His youngest daughters – Mila and two-month-old Maya – are from his relationship with his girlfriend Taylor Selfridge.
Selfridge was pleased with the result of her daughter’s tattoo. She shared Wharton’s post on her Instagram story and wrote, “I’m crying.” She added emojis of a blue butterfly and a crying face.
Fans didn’t like Wharton’s new ink
Teen Mom fans weren’t exactly thrilled about Wharton’s new artwork. A conversation about the tattoo prompted dozens of replies on Reddit. While fans largely agreed that Wharton’s ink wasn’t the worst in Teen Mom history, they didn’t think it was great either.
“Not as bad as Eli’s Javi’s tattoo, but still never a good idea,” said one fan wrote.
“And a hell of a lot better than Amber’s Leah tattoo. I wonder how this holds up,” another added.
However, some people said Wharton’s tattoo was terrible.
“It’s awful lol when it popped up on my feed I was speechless for a minute it’s so bad,” she said wrote.
Javi Marroquin & Amber Portwood also have portrait tattoos
Wharton isn’t the only one with tattoos of his kids’ faces.
Kailyn Lowry’s ex-husband Javi Marroquin has a portrait tattoo of his former stepson Isaac and his sons, 8-year-old Lincoln and 3-year-old Eli.
Amber Portwood also has a portrait tattoo. She got her daughter Leah’s face tattooed on the left side of her stomach in 2010. Unlike Wharton and Marroquin – who opted for black and white tattoos – Portwoods Portrait is in color.
Tyler Baltierra and Catelynn Lowell also wanted to pay homage to their children, but instead of getting portrait tattoos, they opted for it get their names.
The Teen Mom stars put their eldest daughter, Carly, up for adoption after she was born. Baltierra has a tattoo of Carly’s name in the center of his chest and Lowell has her firstborn’s name tattooed on her back.
MTV remastered “Teen Mom” by combining “Teen Mom OG” and “Teen Mom 2.” The new series, titled Teen Mom: The Next Chapter, is scheduled to air on September 6, 2022.
