At work I always laugh when one of the tattooers hands a client a hand-mirror and directs them to the wall-mounted mirror, so they can look at something on the back of their neck. I’d say nine times out of ten people can not for the life of them figure out how to look at the back of their head with two mirrors. They hold the small mirror in front of them and turn awkwardly to look at the big one, they stand facing the big one and try to hold the small mirror behind their head…eventually one of us will walk over, take the damn mirror out of their hand and show them how it’s done.
I guess it’s a learned skill.
Anyway yesterday Ryan helped me shave off a little dead weight from my head and I tried to take a picture of myself…and pulled all the same rookie mistakes. To be fair I didn’t have a hand mirror, just the medicine cabinet mirrors, but still…look what I did.
Note the pseudo-Archie-Andrews-esque crosshatch at the back? That’s because when I was using scissors before the actual shaving I cut a little patch of hair WAY too close to the scalp and we had to do something. This is why you should never cut your own hair guys. Remember that. But anyway I feel a lot better about my hair today than I did yesterday and that’s all that matters, right?
