Craziness. That’s about all I can say. I don’t know what it is about some people, but when it appears as though they’ve totally lost it, they go out and get face tattoos. Mike Tyson is a perfect example. Hey, I don’t have anything against face tattoos, so let’s not get all riled up about that, okay? People can tattoo whatever they want on their bodies and all that, but it seems to me that the dudes who are giving face tattoos a bad name are the guys who have completely swan dived off the deep-end in one way or another.
The most recent celebrity to take up the “official nut” moniker is rapper Gucci Mane. Freshly released from a psychiatric hospital after pleading “mental incompetency” to a parole violation relating to charges of resisting arrest back in November, the rapper showed off his new tattoo on Wednesday. And oh my: what a tattoo it is…
‘Mane, 30, is sporting [an ice cream] cone with three scoops on his right cheek, complete with the word “Brrr” and several red lightning bolts.’
In Mane’s defence, I don’t have anything against ice cream. Hell, I love ice cream. I just had a couple scoops of chocolate Oreo the other night. Very tasty. I’m also not trying to be insensitive to his mental health issues, but damn man – if I had just been released from a mental health institute, I think I’d want to prove how sane I was. I don’t even know exactly what is considered completely sane behaviour: crossword puzzles? Talking about the weather? Whatever it is, you can bet your ass that I’d be doing it. What I wouldn’t be doing is stuff that could potentially push me back into that “ehhhhh…is he all right?” category. Stuff like, oh I don’t know, barbecuing popsicles, replacing my shoe laces with spaghetti or getting a giant fucking ice cream cone, lightning bolts and the word “Brrr” tattooed on to my cheek.
But hey…that’s just me. No judgement.
