While face tattoos are winning the hearts of the grungy hip, if you are searching for ways to refresh your own look, you might want to consider something a little less avant garde? The truth is, not all that is considered fashionable endures. You might want to consider a more cultivated investment as opposed to something that elicits, ‘sorry we aren’t hiring at the moment’. Simplicity is of utmost importance if you really want to appear sartorially gifted for years to come.
