Obviously Pacific Islanders are a separate case, it’s a cultural issue, facial tattoos in the West are something different.
It’s become a lot more socially acceptable but I don’t like them. Back in the 80s it meant taking a hard stance against society in general, joining some outlaw group, criminal or politically extreme.
I saw a routine by a stand up comic talking about some of the facially tattooed people he knew. They complained about immigrants taking their jobs, because all top jobs are held by people who have all coppers are bastards tattooed on their foreheads.
They had Union jacks and swastikas on their faces and it looked like the opening credits of Dad’s Army.
Having said that it is more acceptable today, I’ve seen young ladies with stars on their necks and the like.
Maybe I’m just a bit too old.
