Although the 26-year-old has had a bold, black, geometric pattern tattooed from his left cheek to the right, he insists that when he looks in the mirror, he ‘doesn’t even see the tattoos’.
His ink was produced by 32-year-old Cammy Stewart, a tattoo artist who has the entirety of his face and head tattooed.
Before tattooing the face, he made sure Sean was 100% aware of what he was doing and of the negative impact the facial tattoo may have on his everyday life:
Even after hearing the risks, Sean was adamant that he was getting it done. Sean’s mother was devastated to find out her son had a tattoo on his face and feared for his future employment.
Sean’s fiancée, 22-year-old Laura Cantwell, doesn’t mind Sean’s new tattoo. But, having met him without it, it did take her a while to let the fact her fiance’s face looked completely different.
