One of the most extreme areas of tattooing is the face area. Face tattoos bring an automatic "shrill" from people on the street, and right away these tattooed individuals are differentiated as the more extreme and shocking breed. Some would also say "stupid breed", as many people can't understand why an individual would adorn his face with ink.
Some famous individuals who have chosen face ink, also ironically happen to be world class athletes:
Mike Tyson: The most famous being that of the boxer Mike Tyson. He has a tribal like design on one side of his face, wrapping around his eye.
Lee Priest: Priest is a very popular professional bodybuilder who has won and ranked high in many major competitions. His face tattoo is also delegated to one side of his face and it has a tribal style to it.
David Clinger: Clinger is a professional cyclist and easily the most extreme of the face tattooed athletes. He has a full on tribal design, covering his whole face.
Fears of Face Tattoos:
There is, and should be much fear of getting a face tattoo. Unlike some other area of the body, you need to be extremely sure this is what you want to do as there is no covering up, and no going back. Unfortunately it seems many individuals don't heed the warnings and develop serious regret.
