Being a parent is hard, and it does not get any easier when your child becomes an international superstar. Dominic Holland is experiencing the highs and lows of his son's career now that Tom Holland is the face of Spider-Man in the MCU. However, it does not look like the father is too chuffed about his son's recent comic tattoo.
Over on Twitter, netizens began buzzing about a newly spotted tattoo which Tom Holland is sporting these days. A recent photoshoot of the British actor confirmed the actor has Spider-Man ink on the bottom of his foot (ouch!). A small drawing of a spider dangling from a web can be seen on the sole of Holland's right foot - and his father seems a bit surprised.
Dominic Holland took to Twitter to bemoan his son's tattoo, and the Internet is losing it. The elder wrote a short message online which simply read, "My soon has a tattoo…" The unenthusiastic reply has got fans thinking Tom Holland is in for a serious talk which his father, and fans are teasing the Marvel star with a truly impressive array of GIFs.

When it comes down to it, Holland better be ready to run if his father isn't pleased with the Spider-Man tattoo. The actor may be a grown man, but Dominic looks like he could rule the Holland clan with an iron first. Or, in this case, a tattoo removal laser.prevnext

Laugh all you will, but Holland may have just breached a serious trust contract with his father. Parents react differently to tattoos, and the actor's father really does not seem pleased by his son's sketchy ink. The pain Holland endured for the tattoo could be nothing compared to how he'll feel under his dad's disappointed look.prevnext
@TomHolland1996 you've been exposed pic.twitter.com/CaDVNRdqsq— Tom AF?! (@TomHollandSquad) June 5, 2017
There's a good chance Holland's father doesn't mind the Spider-Man tattoo itself. After all, how many people get to say they've played Spider-Man on the big screen? If anything, it could be Dominic is upset his son didn't tell him about the inking, leaving the star to be exposed for his A-plus secret keeping skills.prevnext
Tom as soon as he reads Dom's reply ?? pic.twitter.com/Q08kTAD83t— quackson?quacksoff (@eggsysbucky) June 5, 2017
Thanks to all of Holland's training for Spider-Man, there is little doubt the actor is in fit shape; Clearly, all that cardio exercise will come in handy should he need to run from his dad. Hopefully his tattoo doesn't hurt anymore!prevnext

Getting a tattoo isn't nearly as taboo as it was in decades past, but there is still a level of rebellion attached to such a thing. Holland getting a Spider-Man tatoo on his foot could very well be a right of passage for the actor, so let's all hope his dad is chill with the body art.prevnext

Holland may be in for a long-overdue conversation with his father about his Spider-Man tattoo, but there are always ways to lessen the talk's blow. The ink is etched in the middle of Holland's foot, and every tattoo guru knows how precarious it is to tattoo there. With how much wear the sole of Holland's feet get, the Spider-Man tattoo won't last too long -right?prevnext
wait... you didn't know.... pic.twitter.com/USjTGYePig— paul(a) rudd (@dayaholland) June 5, 2017
Holland may not have told his dad about his Spider-Man tattoo, but that is surely not the first Marvel secret the actor has kept on the down-low. Marvel Studios is very protective of its casting, so it seems likely Holland had to keep the fact he was playing Spider-Man quiet for a little while. That is arguably a much bigger deal.prevnext

When it comes to the Marvel fandom, Holland has become a fan-favorite actor thanks to his British charm and humor. Fans also adore the star's inability to keep his mouth shut, but the actor may be wishing the press looked over his Spider-Man tattoo. His dad seems to have a few hard feelings over the ink.prevnext
