  1. he probably just shaved his head like that to get the tattoo, not as a fashion statement…

  2. jeni, you’re so right. someone should get a phrenology layout tattooed on a bald head! that would be awesome!

  3. Thats my good friend Johnny!
    He’s on IAM somewhere now so go say hi!

    The tattoo was a spur of the moment thing, so his head is only shaved where the tattoo was to be just so it could be done, no other reason…

  5. It’d be awesome if there were other tattoos hidden under there, like a scratchie…

    “THIS HEAD HAS NO PURPOSE”, perhaps? :D

  6. hmm…what’s with all the duplicates, I’m assuming they were by accident? I also like how the patch looks, kinda like a word bubble

  7. Oh heck I was hoping Shannon would have deleted all the duplicates by now.

    Normally on the old system it gives a warning duplicate entry. Shannon has the system now changed as we get no warning?

    It flicked to error on page inbetween, so wrongly I assumed it hadnt taken the entries.

    What can I say…it was the nut on the keyboard, big sorry people.

  8. I LOVE the idea of a phrenology tattoo, hehe. I don’t really get this tattoo….I have just woken up though:)

  9. OMG, its my head!

    You can’t see from this picture, but there’s also a question mark hanging off the “PURPOSE”. You can clearly see it in this other picture though.

    These pictures were taken less than 24 hours after getting inked, & it healed pretty damn fast. Now I keep a mini mohawk but I still shave a clean rectangle box around the tattoo sometimes. I probably shoud take more recent pictures & post soon then…

  10. This tattoo is symbolic in so many ways. It asks what is the purpose of this tattoo, the location and the meaning. It makes people really question all aspects of a tattoo.
