Did you know Alfred Hitchcock’s classic horror flick “The Birds” was originally made to be released as a 3-d movie some 40 years before the hoopla that is “Avatar”? When I was but a young little freakling, my parents took me to Universal Studios theme park where they showed “The Birds” as originally intended, in 3-D. I remember the birds would land on the heads of people just a few rows up from us and peck at their heads and I was in awe of the fact no one was screaming as they were being viciously attacked.
This movie experience gave me nightmares for many, many weeks. It’s around 25 years later and I felt like I was over this ridiculous fear of birds attacking my head until this BME contributor submitted this photo which give me haunting flash backs.
It’s a simple, simple design but striking to me nonetheless. Plus as someone with full head coverage, I think about how a tattoo will look with some hair growing in over it. A bold design like this will still be apparent through a few weeks worth of hair growth, yet subtle enough to not be noticed by everyone right off the bat, which can be a good compromise if subtlety is required.
