Face Tattoos Must Stop. Now.
Ok. There’s an explosion of face tattoos happening right now that has to stop. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. I keep coming across face tats, and every one of them is trifling and unnecessary in every way.
Before, folks tattooed 2 tear drops on their face when they were about the killing and gang life. 2 measly tear drops ain’t ruin the land. They were a bit much but still. They took up an inch under folks’ eyes. But lately, I wish the tear drops were the only things people got permanently etched on their visages.
But no. Now people are getting any and everything tatted on their faces. Like they have no other body part to use. I blame Lil Wayne and Gucci Mane for this. I REALLY do. The minute Lil Wayne turned his face into a map of randomness and Gucci got an ice cream cone (that ish was not “cold.” It was stupid. As hell), other impressionable negros (and non-negros) followed suit. And I’m not okay with it. At all.
These fools here…
People are using their faces as the world’s tackiest canvas.
Why would you want to get tatted on your face if you aren’t a rapper or tattoo artist? And if you aren’t a famous rapper yet, it probably won’t happen for you, statistically speaking, that is. A job might be something you should try falling back on, and releasing MySpace mixtapes til you turn 50 is NOT respectable. Grow the hell up with your fool ass.
I just don’t understand the appeal of getting permanent makeup (which is what ink is) on your face, and a huge one at that too. Folks are walking around with their whole cheek covered with some randomness they might not even like next week. And what happens when they age and wrinkles happen. Those tattoos gon look like they’re melting. Nothing about that is attractive. And that is why they can’t have nice things.
And people who date people with face tattoos. Do you not look at your partner and jump back sometimes like “WHAT THE FUCK IS ON YOUR… Oh. It’s your tattoo.” I know I would. I’d wake up and check my pillows to see if anything rubbed off on em. NAWL SIR!
Everyone, just stop it. Tattoo artists, stop agreeing to do them. Like now. RIGHT NOW. Just stop.
That is all.
