These mugshots of people with permanent tattoos on the front of them are not all very flattering and some are a little disturbing. Tattoos can be artistic and adventurous forms of skin art, but where is the line that defines art?
These individuals were obviously caught on film for various forms of activity. Mugshots allow law enforcement to have a photographic record of all arrested individuals to allow for identification by victims and investigators. It seems to me that it would be fairly easy to pick one of these characters out of a line up.
