Below we have a one Curtis Allgier. Curtis is a white supremacist who was already serving time at the Utah State Prison when he allegedly shot and killed a corrections officer when he tried to escape back in June, 2007. In case some of the wording is difficult to read (and really, why wouldn't it be? It's writing on his face for cryin' out loud. Most people read books.), allow me. The very top of his forehead reads "Property of Jolene" (a statement which, I'm sure, makes Jolene very, very proud to have him as her "property") and the one underneath that reads, of course, "Skinhead". Under one eye is "5150" and under the other eye it reads "Style". Oh, yeah. Because you've got "style". Sure. Um, next....above his upper lip it reads "hatebreed" and on his chin is the summation of his disposition, the word "fun". And yes, that is Adolf Hitler inked into his chest there.
In case you were curious, here's a Before and After shot of Curtis that I put together.
I'm not sure what the look was that the chap below was going for. It's sort of like a lame Alice Cooper homage, but the key word there is "lame". It's also hard to tell from this particular photo whether or not he's attempting to sport the handlebar moustache, so he can join the ranks of the facially tattooed morons and the mustachioed facially tattooed morons.
This woman seemed to not be quite clear as to where she wanted her hair to end and her tattoo to begin. Or vice versa. I really couldn't tell you as I'm having trouble coming up with the words that would describe exactly what I'm thinking about this. I think it's just going to have to suffice for me to say that she's clearly a piece of work. Probably one in progress.
I don't know what the story is behind checkerboard head there. But I do know that if you're ever on a long car trip with him and you get bored, you can always use his head as a game board and pass the time after you've tired of the License Plate Game. Even with all of the little squares covering his face, he doesn't exactly strike me as looking like the sharpest tool in the shed. Seems a little vacant.
This is Bruce Potts. Bruce is sporting a lovely, multi-colored, full-face tribal tattoo. Bruce, in a surprising sort of way, teaches Public Speaking at the University of New Mexico. He says that, 'I have had very few negative reactions. People have been amazingly supportive." He also says that he hasn't "....had trouble getting a job, because success is all about how one presents him or herself and doesn't solely depend on appearance." Well, OK then. He has a job. He's good. He's different looking, but he's good.
And finally, there's this guy. This one I just don't get. It would appear that he has the words "Fuck you" tattooed there on the side of his neck. Either that or someone just scribbled that on there with a ballpoint pen, as that is really what it looks like. I'm not sure what the lines represent, but it does appear that he has little spikes coming out of the top of his bald melon there so perhaps they are the guidelines for when he's weaving potholders on his head or something like that. (You know, just in case the loom is out of service or whatever.) I'm not sure of what the purpose is. I do wish that was just ballpoint pen ink on there. (And I really wish he didn't have little spike-y things poking out of his head also.)
Why did he go with the 'hastily scrawled' font for the "FU"? It's definitely one of the many, many signs that perhaps he should have thought it through just a tad bit more. Five minutes. Anything, really. It's definitely not very friendly, either. Not friendly at all. Rushed and rude is what I get out of that. (Is that a built-in Bluetooth headset he's got going there? No? Hmmm. Maybe questions like that are what the "FU" is directed at, eh?) Sphere: Related Content
