Joe Munroe of Bournemouth at work tattooing

A beautiful photo of artist Joe Munroe of Bournemouth ( at work. It used to be that the stereotype of facial tattoos was that of a rather ugly fellow, whose attractiveness was gained from rugged individualism and criminal charm rather than the sort of fashion-model good lucks that’ll get you on the cover of a GQ. That stereotype has been well-shattered for some time, and if my swooning does not betray any heterosexuality I have left, I say with confidence that Joe keeps that stereotype solidly dead and buried, showing that facial tattoos only make the handsome more handsome. Two more pictures continue after the break, including one with a secret message to another UK tattoo master, Xed le Head, if you look closely enough (all of these can be zoomed).
