According to this blog post, around 3,000,000 people have face tattoos. That’s quite a bit more than I would’ve guessed, for sure! I was watching an episode of the Bachelorette and it was the hometown dates. I promise this connects to face tattoos, just hang on. 🙂 The Bachelorette Tayshia is at the point in her “righteous endeavor” that she’s doing the hometown dates. It looks a little different this year because, well, it’s 2020, so the families of the remaining men actually came to the Bachelorette compound and they all sort of pretended they were in their real hometown. Anyway, one of the families included the brother of Ivan, a guy hoping to end up with Tayshia. This brother was full of tattoos, including all over his face and neck.
Then, in a very random way, I found out for the first time ever who Lil Xan is. I regret ever finding out about this young man (no offense, Lil Xan). This rocked me enough to write up another post just about him. I won’t even ruin your day by including a picture.
But then I went down a rabbit hole wondering about how all these face tattoo people feel about wearing masks for coronavirus. It’s like they’re covering up someone’s masterpiece. Well, “masterpiece” might be a stretch, but the tattoos these people probably love are often covered by the masks. For those of you who work in sales, it would be like winning a big account but you’re not allowed to tell anyone. Or a football player scoring a touchdown that gets called back by a holding penalty. Seeing your dog walk upright but forgetting to hit record on your camera.
They’ve GOT to be disappointed with all these mask mandates, right? Of course, the two examples above (Ivan’s brother and Lil Xan) have tattoos near their eyes, too, so the masks don’t completely cover up all the ink.
Anyway, if you’re one of the three million that have a face tattoo and feel like sharing, comment below with your thoughts. I’ll be waiting curiously.
Thanks for stopping by!
