I'm looking to get a tattoo of the Japanese word for "father".

It's important to point out, that the meaning of the tattoo is that I myself am a father (to a little girl) and it's not a reference to my father.

I would prefer to have a single kanji, but of course the most important thing is that the tattoo has the appropriate meaning.

I've seen the 父-kanji (chichi), but would that be interpreted as a reference to my father? Should it be otousan, and can that only be written as "お父さん" and not with a single kanji like chichi?

Any help is much appreciated.
