Wow lyric,

I never would have thought that there is a tattoo for such a subject, but there is obviously! Awesome. These give one to pause as to the powerful message they send. All of them appear to be large tattoos too.

Now, I have seen the mask tattoos before with the smiling/sad faces, but never knew what they were called.

Voted up ++++ and sharing

God bless. Hugs to you this beautiful day, Faith Reaper

@AE, yes Ruby, I do like the positive meaning of the laugh now cry later tattoo. I think that it became a battle cry to many as it's often referred to as a prison tattoo design or gang tattoo. Even with this negative association, laugh now love tattoo designs don't always mean that someone went to jail. LOL, Cheers, see you around Ruby:)
