For a lot of people, when it comes to tattoos, they'll say 'think about what it'll look like when you're older'.

Fair enough, it's good logic, as an old wrinkly bloke with 'tomorrow's just another day' on his chest is mad, but it's that sort of attitude that can ruin life. First off, how many people are actually gonna see an 87-year-old bloke topless?

Anyway, there are arguments for and against, but when it comes to tattoos on your face, it's a totally different kettle of fish. LA based musician Arnold Gutierrez, for example, how's he going to explain to his grandchildren why he has an inking of Anne Frank on his face?

He goes by the name Xan Frank, or ArnoldIsDead, in his the collective known as Xanarchy, explained to Noisey that the famous diarist is somewhat of an inspiration to him.

He said: "There are people in history that didn't have the power to control, to actually do things that they wanted to do with their lives. To be stuck in, like, a house, and end up dying and shit, dude I'm dying to make music. That's the way I look at it. It's very black and white.

"She ended up getting caught and ended up being murdered and yo - I've been put at gunpoint and I've had a lot of serious shit in my life before and like seeing that shit, you can't get any worse than being killed off in your own country.

"Seeing like Jewish people come in, in my own classroom and seeing them talk about the Holocaust, like survivors... that shit always stuck to me personally."

The picture of his tattoo quickly went viral after he posted it on Instagram, making its way to Twitter, Facebook and Reddit, with a lot of people confused by it.

One person wrote: "I can't for the life of me think of a reason to tattoo Anne Frank on ur [sic] face."

The general consensus was that it was a bad idea, you know to get an image of a historic yet tragic figure on your face. As alluded to earlier though, each to their own.
