God-Awful Gun Tattoo of the Day – Michael Vines

Michael Vines Gun Tattoo Forehead

courtesy heraldonline.com

Does a crappy tattoo of a GLOCK on your forehead constitute probable cause? Even if it doesn’t, that’s really pushing it. Especially if you’re already a prohibited person. And you’re carrying a gun (a real one).

A man with a forehead tattoo of a pistol was arrested for having a real one in his possession after a recent car crash in Greenville, S.C., according to police.

Officials said Michael Vines is federally prohibited from possessing a firearm, but that he had a .38-caliber revolver on him when he was involved in a wreck near the intersection of Green Avenue and Guess Street.

Read the whole thing here.

The only aspect that could have made this any better was if Vines lived in Florida. His parents must be so proud.

    Tatoo on your forehead screams scumbags , especially if said tattoo is a glock. Yes his parent must be proud. As are all his gang related buddies. This guy is not the sharpest tool in the toolbox !!

  2. avatar Chris T in KY says:

    A person with a tattoo on their face has a threat indicator. And criminals have many threat indicators before they attack. And who will hire you with facial tattoo’s???? Or will you get promoted???

    He might be a Libertarian. (smile)
    I hope he can live with the choice he made. Does he have a girl friend? Or a boy friend maybe?

    1. avatar Joe R. says:

      He could say he was ‘branded’ with it by a group of tattoo machine toting NRA ‘thugs’ that just walked out of an OFWG’s AA meeting. Then he could go on the soros-bloomy speaking tour, and retire comfortably.

      “Does he have a girl friend? Or a boy friend maybe?”

      If he does prison time for this, he might get a boyfriend out of the experience…

      I’m 100% certain this doofus was self-employed — as a walking, talking, breathing cautionary tale. One of those morons whose entire existence is a warning to others.

    4. avatar Southern Cross says:

      It is said any tattoo on the neck or higher says the cost of your incarceration will exceed the value of any taxes you will ever pay.

      But criminals aren’t exactly the brightest bulbs in the pack or the sharpest tools in the shed. Why would you have an obvious and identifying tattoo on your face while committing crimes is beyond stupid.

    If he thinks too hard and wrinkles his brow does it go full auto?

    1. avatar Bloving says:

      *snicker* good one…
      I’ve been trying to perfect my “please go away” facial expression for the occasional neer’do-well like this that wanders into my shop with his equally questionable girlfriend hoping she’ll straw-buy a gun for him.

  4. avatar Treedodger says:

    This story left out that he was also driving on a suspended license.

    So much stupid, I wouldn’t even know where to begin.

    Car crash, driving to fast for conditions, prohibited person. Prohibited person? Just for me, none for thee. His parents would probably be proud, they may be. As long as it’s not taking away my supressed AR with hi cap mag and Bumpfire stock it’s all good, Right…Judge as you wish to be judged.

    1. avatar DaveL says:

      Well, his mother may be proud. I doubt his father could pick him out of a lineup.

      1. avatar No one of consequence says:

        I’m sure he could!

        All he’d need to do is look for the one who’s a clip off the old Glock.

  8. avatar Bob in IN says:

    I bet he smacks his forehead and says “I could have had a 1911”

    1. avatar Curtis in IL says:

      Evil, extra-long, high capacity extended assault magazines like the one shown are harder to find for a 1911. He has an image to live up to, you know.

      1. avatar California Richard says:

        Maybe he’s a soccer… er,…. futbol player and he heads the ball in to the net…. maybe he has a matching AR15 on his shooting leg.

  9. avatar Indiana Tom says:

    Hogg needs one of these for his tour.

  10. avatar Samr says:

    Gun should been one that shot the immortal 6.5 CM. Difference between a good forehead tat and a bad one. If you ask basically anyone.

    1. avatar California Richard says:

      Absolutely!…. We all say, “His parents must be proud,” and, “He’ll never get a job,” but I believe his biggest regret is that he didn’t save the prime tatoo spot (his forehead) for a 6.5 CM gun….. he probably cries when he brushes his teeth in the morning and thinks, “If only that were a 6.5CM then I’d have the money, the power, and the womens….. *sigh*…”

        My bet is the meth has reduced his need for a toothbrush to nothing.

  12. avatar Cooter E Lee says:

    Many firearms instructors will tell you must pick a definitive point of aim like a shirt button. I guess a face tattoo would work too.

  13. avatar Ralph says:

    Only a total idjit would take a perfectly good Glock and tattoo a face on it. And a goddam ugly face at that.

  14. avatar rt66paul says:

    If he wanted to, maybe a .9mm handgun would fit on his junk – only his cellie would know for sure….

  15. avatar Brian says:

    Joy stick tatt’d to the head? hmmmm.

  16. avatar Brendo says:

    I wonder if he, like all other Libtards. Blamed the gun…….tattoo

    “ sorry officers, but the gun made me do it. Its the tattoos fault” :/

    Somebody just put this fool out of his misery

  20. avatar ollie says:

    We need long waiting periods of at least a month — for tattoos .

    In my local sheriff’s weekly Ten Most Wanted list, 8 to 10 of the perps will have tatts. Must be something toxic the Chinese put in the ink that causes criminal behavior.

    1. avatar Red in CO says:

      You could say the same thing about guns. After all, 100% of those who commit crimes with firearms either owned or possessed a firearm at the time of their crime

      (If you’re not trying to claim that having tattoos= idiotic criminal, than I’m sorry and please disregard my point. If you are, as I suspect, then you’re a loser who is no better than the leftists who would judge you for being a “gun person”) you filthy hypocrite

  21. avatar Chris says:

    Impossible, this is fake news. It clearly states he’s not allowed to own one.

    As a side note: Yeah, this only tarnishes the reputation of glock owners even further. I have several pistols, including a g17. It is not my favorite, I do not think highly of it, but I know I can depend on it to work, should the moment arise. Other than that, it stays mothballed while my italian pistols receive all of the attention.

  22. avatar DrDKW says:

    Would’ve been better off just tatooing ‘STUPID’ on his forehead!


  23. avatar JW says:

    Now if he had a 6.5 creedmoor tattooed on his forehead he’d be president!

  24. avatar GS650G says:

    You could claim you saw him with a gun before defending yourself

  25. avatar Gun Owning American says:

    Does this count as open carry?

  26. avatar bontai joe says:

    Just look at the tombstones in his eyes. There is absolutely nothing going on between his ears, probably hasn’t been since he was 4 years old. I don’t care if his mom didn’t love him, or if his dad beat him, or if he had a bad childhood, missed meals, got picked on in school. This guy has dead eyes and in my humble opinion, can’t be “fixed”. Society will be best served having him removed and locked up

  27. avatar Eddie Hubbard says:

    Damn he is ate up with the DUMB ASS. Hell he should have tattooed a prick across his forehead too.
