It has come to my attention that men with beards and tattoos are the ‘in’ thing at the moment, so i thought we should have a look at some of these rather dashing men with an accompanying ramble from moi.
Lets start with the tattooed part. Men with tattoos have long been a favourite of mine (excluding those with tribal tattoos or dragons and the such like (not that there’s anything particularly wrong with this, I just dont like them personally)). I guess I have always gone for the ‘alternative’ look favouring boys in skinny jeans with long fringes and lip piercings when i was younger. And now favouring men with skinny jeans, more quiff like hair and lip piercings now. I’m not really sure what it is about the tattooed look that drives women wild…perhaps its the essence of a ‘bad boy image’. All I know is that i am particularly more drawn to a guy with tattoos than without.
Then theres the mustache. I have been an admirier of a good curly mustache for many years as a devoted fan of Poirot, my favourite Belgian detective. The 1920/30/40s eras are some of my very favourites too, so any men that have an air of these decdes about them instantly has my attention. I LOVE A DANDY. love love love them. I wish, (and you would have thought living in Brighton would allow this to be fulfilled more often) that there were more Dandies out in the streets with their perfectly quaffed mustaches, top hats and canes.
This, therefore, leads us to the beards. Up until recently I wasn’t as attracted by guys with beards as much as tattoos and or mustaches, although Tom Hardy can come however he bloody well likes in my opinion. But alas, one day I was sat at work talking with the girls from the nail bar and the tattoo studio (yes, we have it all – Needles and Nails, Brighton) when a certain Chris John Millington was introduced to my life. The man is GORGEOUS. I was aware of Ricki Hall, and found him to be attractive (probably more because of the skinnies and tattoos) but Chris Millington was on another level. Plus, hes Scottish and I have always had a soft spot for a Scottish accent. So, if you are unaware, Chris Millington and Ricki Hall are both fashion models, who have beautiful bearded and/or tattooed model friends. Billy Huxley, Lee Beaumont and Joshua Williams are just a few lovely men you should check out if any of the aforementioned attributes interest you.
