I love tattoos, its a way to express yourself. I in no way find it degrading.
I have heard of a man who was paid $150,000 to have the tattoo of a coffee cup on his forehead for 2 years plus got free coffee for the rest of his life. After 2 years his contract was up and he was able to get it removed.
Personally, I would never put anything on my face but my arms and my legs, I would be more than happy to have the free money for a tasteful company. My tattoos all represent a chapter in my life and that could be an interesting chapter to add.
