Just in case you thought that a tattoo would have no effect on your life or personal income, here’s the poster boy for bad choices in life and tats.
Jason Barnum, aka “Eyeball”, was sentenced to 22 years in prison for first-degree attempted murder, first-degree burglary and third-degree felony in possession of a weapon. In a far too rare instance of rationality in the courtroom, his appearance was taken in to consideration during the sentencing. Anchorage Police Department Chief Mark Mew requested that the appearance of Barnum be considered in the process.
Taking a page from the permanently offended crowd, Eyeball whined about being discriminated against because of his appearance. “I tried to get a job, but of course my beautiful face didn’t allow me to do that.”
If I saw somebody like that on the street, I’d immediately cross the street and warn parents to get their children indoors. If your desire is to appear as close as possible to our idea of Satan, then you should expect to be treated as such. We have become way too tolerant of these freaks and it’s just another breaking stitch in the fabric of our society.
