He's wearing a T-shirt and a baseball cap proudly flashing a tattoo on his fingers that reads "Chef Life." In the middle box is an unsmiling baby girl propped up by an adult hand, her name written on a mugshot letter board. On the right box is a man with his head tilted and the same surname as the baby girl.
