Questionable Forehead Tattoos

Recommended Posts

Here are some funny tattoo pictures I recently found that are questionable forehead tattoos. It seems like I am seeing more and more of these lately with only a few good and majority of them being just ridiculous. Also here's a good article on a father-son forehead tattoo combo I found:

Father and son sport forehead tattoos


These mug shots of 48-year-old Floyd Bebees and his 21-year-old son, Justin, were taken on different dates.

If you look closely, you'll notice that each gentleman sports a forehead tattoo.

In [smoking Gun] interview, Floyd Bebee, a father of eight, said that he has a tattoo on the back of his head reading "Got-R-Did." The ink on his forehead cost $125 and took about 45 minutes to complete, Bebee said, adding that he was the family trendsetter when it it came to such head art. Bebee, who does odd jobs like home remodeling and demolition, said that his wife has a succinct response to his forehead ink: "You crazy," she said. Bebee noted that since his son's eyes are open in his mug shot, the photo does not reveal a hidden surprise: Justin has the words "Fuck" and "You" tattooed on his eyelids. Boing Boing

Mom sells face space for tattoo advertisement

For $10,000 and a brighter future for her son, Kari Smith on Wednesday became a real life pop-up ad for a virtual casino.

"It feels like someone is taking a pin and just stabbing you with it," Smith told her son, Brady, seated nearby on the floor as tattoo artist Don Brouse — in permanent black block letters — branded her forehead with the Web site domain GoldenPalace.com.

The 30-year-old Bountiful mother, who put the space up for auction on the Web, will be promoting the multinational gambling site, which makes the claim — using a little more color and a lot more flash — to be the No. 1 online casino.

"Will it go numb?" she asked.

"It'll go as numb as your brain," Brouse replied.

"My brain is already numb," she said, laughing.

Smith's ad is a labor of love and actually a positive in her life, something she says her life hasn't been filled with lately: a failed marriage and deaths of several family members — most recently, her sister in a car crash April 18.

Smith said the money will give her son the education boost she believes he needs after falling behind in school since the accident.

"For the all the sacrifices everyone makes, this is a very small one," she said. "It's a small sacrifice to build a better future for my son."

Still, Smith said she knows most people won't understand why she's sold her forehead as advertising space.

"I really want to do this," she said. "To everyone else, it seems like a stupid thing to do. To me, $10,000 is like $1 million. I only live once, and I'm doing it for my son."

Brouse didn't understand it, either.

In his 24 years, he's turned away a lot of customers who want to get tattoos that can't be covered up with clothing. He and his staff spent nearly seven hours Wednesday trying to talk Smith out of it.

Her resolve won out. The one thing Brouse could do with inch-tall letters in the prominent spot was to make them less so by keeping them as close to her hairline for those occasions when bangs or a hat might be the more appropriate message.

Smith's boyfriend, Jeremy Williams, said the couple discussed the idea for more than three weeks before deciding to go through with it. And when they did, Smith's eBay auction attracted more than 27,000 hits and 1,000 watchers.

Bidding reached $999.99 before Goldenpalace.com, an Internet gambling company in the Mohawk Territory of Kahnawake, Canada, clicked "buy now," meeting Smith's $10,000 asking price and ending the auction two days early.

Smith said she talked to several companies and received multiple offers, but she decided Goldenpalace.com would be the best choice.

"We decided to go with these guys because they work with a lot of charities," she said. "I want this to mean something."

Jon Wolf of the company's marketing department said skin is not an uncommon spot for the casino to advertise: It already has another forehead, more than 100 arms, legs, chests and backs.

Smith is the first woman to have her forehead tattooed with an advertisement, and "we like having a collection of firsts," Wolf said.

While he said he wasn't sure if body advertisements boosted the company's business, Wolf said having so many has garnered notoriety.

"We couldn't come up with an advertising campaign like this and try to make people get these tattoos," he said. "But if they're putting it out there, it's good for them and it's good for us."

"Basically, if it's legal offline, it's generally fine on our site," eBay spokesman Chris Donlay said. "We've seen people doing this for a number of years. I don't know that any of them have actually sold, but it's sort of interesting when people list them."

Donlay said he has seen other auctions where bidders can pay to have their logo shaved into someone's head — or even name their babies.

Smith said she doesn't think she'll ever regret having the permanent logo on her forehead, and her son promised to get good grades.

my sister went to art school in Philadelphia in the 80s. While there, she got together with a painting major from Iran with "Made in USA" tattooed on his forehead. They were together for about 7 years. Sweet guy...good artist...but yes, he did have some mental problems.

I saw a thugged out looking black guy at the mall in jacksonville FL with the Polo Ralph Lauren logo right in the middle of his forehead. I also know someone in jax who tattooed Luis Vuitton 'LV' logo pattern all over a guy's forehead and side of face so that he could match with his new shoes.

Fucking morons.

I guess it is cheaper to tattoo luxury brand logos on yourself then it is to actually own anything from those brands.

Remember, as difficult as it may be to believe- there are many people out there who view many of our tattoos the same way.

True story. Tattooing clothing brands on yourself or a company name is a whole other issue that has more to do with the frantic materialism that is ingrained in our society.. and while I'd say forehead tattoos are not my thing and I usually think they're a pretty bad choice, it doesn't mean everyone with their face or forehead tattooed has mental problems.

Definitely questionable! But not always insane.. except that hello kitty guy. Looks like he might decapitate you.

If a tattoo artist walked into my school, half the boys would try to get tattoo on their face and necks as their first tattoo.

We talk about tattoos a lot and I always try to express to them the importance of how your tattoo will impact your life.

IMHO this guy above needed that talk.

I'm not fully sure what this guy is trying to say about himself... I figure if I keep looking long enough I might get it... One thing I can tell straight off the bat is what an upstanding citizen he is ;)
