What is your opinion on getting facial tattoos?

Post by Jimmy Crow » Sat May 26, 2018 12:25 pm

Well, so I love the concept of beautiful tattoos in human body parts except face. The reason being our most important part is our face from the perspective of identification and beauty. If someone does a full face tattoo his or her original and natural identity is lost, he or she will be perceived by his tattooed face only!! Mike Tyson has a facial tattoo, but his originality remains as his tattoo is just 4 inch. Its been known that the former heavyweight boxer is trying to get rid off his facial tattoo. Famous tattoo artist Kat Von D has 27 tattoos in her entire body but she has only 16–17 small stars on her face !

Another important point is that a full face tattooed face becomes so monotonous and mundane, it becomes difficult to try out different looks and changes. As it is well cited in the book of Spencer Johnson - Who moved my cheese, change is inevitable and must in our life and one should embrace quality changes in life.

But having said that “Tattoo” is not just inserting ink, dyes and pigments into our dermis layer and giving beautiful artistic look, it's more than that. Usually people who have multiple tattoos, their tattoos are not mere art, they are the reflection of past incidents and emotions deep inserted in their hearts! If someone has a facial tattoo as a reflection of multiple psychological experiences and changes, then my above mentioned reasons are absolute bullshit to them:-)
Everyone is equal. Everyone has a place. No one is written off, because there is worth and goodness in every life... That is the Republican ideal. And if we won't defend it, who will?

Like the maori stuff, but that's for them innit. Saw a news article the other day about a white kiwi lady getting the chin tatt and the outrage from it.

Also pretty cool if you're a diehard neo-nazi. Not my thing, but shows commitment to the cause. Same for the black gangsters like tyson and wayne.

As for the emo rappers that they have these days, like lil peep and lil whoever, looks more than a bit shit, although I am tempted to get some xanax teardrops falling from my eye inked on myself. The mrs says the love/hate on my knuckles is already enough.

There was a guy in Sinville used to get around on a big bike, with all the decorations, had his face covered. Spoke very good Khmer. Anyone see him about now?

Last activity in 2013 and he hasn't been reportedly scamming since 2015. He's probably in jail or dead. Some friend of his asked about him 2 years ago. I doubt that he turned up. https://www.facebook.com/geno.munkholm

His full legal name is Geno Oliver Skjold Munkholm from Gørløse, Denmark (in case anyone is really trying to get a hold of him).
