Odd man out? Update

Really had no idea how to title this post.


We live in a pretty high COL area of a major town in a nice little suburb. It's a pretty homogeneous area despite the diverse ethnicities here. People dress a certain way, you see similar cars being driven, people behave a particular way… it is what it is.

I was at a high school sports event this morning with about 10 or 12 high schools from all over the area. There was one person that really stood out.... A father with face tattoos. I felt kind of bad for him because he was simply there to watch his child run and people would walk by and do a double take or walk by make comments in hushed tones afterwards.



Update.... saw tattooed high achoolrrs for the first time. I'm assuming they are seniors.

I don't care what anyone says or how hard they try to deny it... People with unnatural hair colors, a million piercing, tattoos on their faces and that sort of thing do that so that people WILL look at them. Look at me! Look at me! You don't tattoo your face to get people to STOP looking at you.

As someone with tats (non on my face/neck) we're used to it. I worked in a very conservative field and people would stare at the ones that are visible, all of the time.

Okay and... I mean you got a tatoo on his face pretty sure almost anywhere he'd go he'd get that reaction.

I've seen HS kids with tattoos, too... and they're not all seniors.

I don't blame people for staring. Face tattoos are trashy.

I think most would do a double take when one has a face tattoo. The economics of the area is irrelevant.

I would stare at face tattoos regardless of what the COL was. Its trashy and they are there to be looked at. I like to look at tattoos anyway if they are visible. I am sure he is used to it. Most people who get tattoos anywhere, let alone on their face, dont give a fu*k what others think.
