This and That | Sunday November 13th, 2011
Bryon Widner, a former US white supremacist, covered his face with racist tattoos as a teenager. Decades later, after leaving the white supremacist movement and being unable to find a job with such appearance, he started to strongly regret his decision of tattooing his face in such way. At one point, he felt so bad that he even considered plunging his face into acid in order to make the tattoos fade. He finally underwent an extremely long, painful and expensive procedure in order to erase the tattoos. His face is now cleared of tatoos. Maybe his experience will make young people think twice before they tattoo their face or any other visible part of their body.
