Yup. And it wouldn't be the end of the world. Self expression is a good thing - and everyone chooses to handle it differently. I'll leave it at that, because I just don't have the energy to get up on my soapbox, let alone my (miniature) high horse. ;)

when "art" and "self-expression" would lose them 99% of job opportunities, then yes, it's a big deal.

The best lesson a parent can allow a kid to learn? All actions have consequences.

And 1% of opportunities is still a job.

But then he/she would have to look 99 times harder to find said job. ;)

See my first statement. :D

I think law dictates that one must be 18 before body art can happen. His choice. His consequence. But for the record, I do disagree with the 1% figure.

I too believe in self expression. Back in the day I was one of the first people in our school to grow his hair long and I suffered the consequences at that time. (yes, I was a hippie, a freak and one of them there long hairs) I was sent to the principals office, called out in gym class, verbally abused and beaten up walking down the street by the jocks.
I would never discourage a person from expressing himself but, self mutilation is something that can not be easily reversed, especially on the face. And, I would guess, someday this man will probably regret some of the choices he has done to express himself.

That first guy is a repeat. Please replace with a fresh face. ;)

Thank you Mike! If there's one thing I can't stand, it's reruns on the tattoo channel. This new image is really fantastic! He's probably saving up for the forks and spoons. Ya think? Complete table setting for 2?

They were both home this weekend, and we all had a good chuckle looking over the images and comments here. Neither seemed interested in having any work done - even when I offered to pay. :lol:
