Generally, we try to avoid stereotyping people and there are some stereotypes surrounding people who get tattoos, but face tattoos are an international symbol for a person’s lack of intelligence. This is especially true if you get a tattoo of a face on your face. It takes a stunning lack of common sense to get inked above your neck and it’s clear that your brain isn’t working because only someone with a permanent numb head could endure such pain.
Last month, police in (where else?) Florida jailed a man who had just such a tattoo, who I assume splurged on this much ink, since it’s not like he was going to use the money for books. St. Petersburg police picked up Victor Thompson on a possession charge after officers caught him carrying some Spice, a synthetic form of marijuana. He has a lot of striking features for a suspect including a bald head, a pair of crazy eyes and a dopey smile to match it. However his tmost striking includes a tattoo that covers the entire surface of cranium. He has a New England Patriots replica helmeted tattoo that covers the top and back of his head including the team’s insignia on either side and a “Riddell” logo just underneath on the top of his forehead. He also has the Vince Lombardi trophy drawn on the very top of his skull.

He is not a winner.
It’s an ironic tattoo because we’re sure the man has never worn a helmet in his life for any reason and he clearly needs one unless St. Petersburg has a padded cell.
