Still In Pain

From a French Seller

With that grimace and those watery eyes, this boy seems to still be suffering the agonies he experienced in the tattooist’s chair. What a face! I imagine this was his attempt at trying to look like a tough guy. I think he needs more time to perfect his mannerisms for that role, don’t you?

His tattoo is a panther, I think. Or some other type of big cat. Given the heights of tattoo art these days, this is a rather underwhelming effort. I wonder if he added to it or even had work done over it?

    At first I thought, “He’s making that face in jest”, but you’re right, he’s tearing up. Good lord. Too bad they didn’t have faux-hawks and skinny jeans back then, this one would fit right in with that crowd. 🙂

  2. Just a thought.. why are panthers such a popular tattoos? I’m not ashamed to say I have one on my right arm covering up a bad tattoo and that’s the only reason why I have a big panther on my own.. Smh

    • No idea but I guess it is just more macho to have a panther than a Persian. 😆

      But seriously, aren’t most big cats popular as tattoos? I’ve seen panthers, tigers and lions. They are majestic animals and beautiful and they represent power and speed. So I guess they are symbolic and look cool at the end of the day.

  3. I’ was so distracted trying to figure out what he was doing with both of his hands, I missed the tattoo until you mentioned it. I think this might be a look of regret 😉

  4. Hahaha that has to be one of the worst tattoos I’ve seen. It looks like some sort of cross between a panther a horse and a dragon! Great photo
