I had no idea anything was wrong with him. There were no outward signs.

How do you “bring mental health to the forefront” when you’re so busy exploiting someone who is clearly having issues? And shame to the tatooist(s) who continued to deface this young man’s body long after it was clear he was not right.

All that ink can't be good for one's health.

When it comes to self-destruction, maybe the pen is mightier than the sword.

Clearly satanic influence. Very sad.

Odd that the wise and knowledgeable Lady Blabla didn’t sound the alarm when she saw the destruction he had brought upon his body. I suspect his bizarre look served her purpose rather than alert her to his need for help.

I was at some store the other day and a mother and 3 year old daughter were walking out. The mother had at least 20 visible tattoos. All I could think was the little girl in a few years realizing what a skank her mother is.

I believe that large tatt over his sternum is a sign that he is HIV positive.

Strange how tattoos are considered “normal” today, the more the merrier. We used to see these type people exhibiting at the Freak Shows at the carnival back in the 1950s.

Several years ago, the daughter of a friend of mine was dating a guy who had MANY tattoos. The friend said that the guy had some kind of serious and chronic blood infection issues, never in good health. He was in his mid-20s.

... has died of an apparent suicide...


They say that tattoos are permanent evidence of temporary insanity. Well, what happens when you do to yourself what he did and, one day you wake up and look in the mirror, interpreting what you see with a sane man’s brain?

Kill the b@st@rd.

It should not be a surprise that people who continually immerse in darkness will reach a point where they can no longer see any light.
