Man Speaks Out About How His Life Changed After Getting Face Tattoo
The modern world is rife with embarrassing tattoos. Ink that was carved into skin in the blurry utopia of a drunken night out before becoming a permanent nightmare after sobering up.
However most are relatively easy to hide simply by wearing a long sleeved shirt, gloves, or pants. But what if it was your face that was tattooed?
26-year-old, Sean Green, had the lower half of his face tattooed. After going back to work and expecting a promotion, he lasted half an hour before being told the promotion would no longer be his.
But what is life really like with a face tattoo? Well according to Sean, he ‘doesn’t even see the tattoos’.
When the artist, who also has a face coated in ink, got to work on Sean’s face, Sean said:
As soon as he started putting it on I was just like, ‘that is the best tattoo I’ve ever seen’. I just, I love it.
However, it’s not all perfect, as Sean’s mum was apparently left devastated by the tattoo, saying:
[The facial tattoos] really, really upset me. And they still do, actually. They upset me for a long, long time.
I don’t know if Sean at that time, or even now, has the concept of what this is going to be like for him in 20 years. I think in a lot of ways he’s not going to be able to do the work he’s always wanted to do. I don’t think he’ll ever get to do it.
Although personally, Sean doesn’t regret his tattoo, he worries for his young daughter, Skye, saying: ‘It’s something I’m concerned about, for Skye’s sake. But that’s all, really’.
Personally, I wouldn’t get a tattoo on my face. Mike Tyson put me off that idea. But whatever floats your boat, I guess.
