Mugshots Friday: Giving Thanks For Neck Tattoos and Bad Decisions

Every Friday, Riptide brings you the most eye-catching mugshots taken the previous week (or thereabouts) in Miami-Dade County. Yes, there is some mockery of bad neck tattoos, but also adulation directed at perps who just plain look more badass than we ever will. This is the italicized intro to that series. For mugshots from Broward and Palm Beach, check out The Pulp.

Arrested: 11/20
Charged with: Cocaine possession
We're getting this week's Mugshots Friday off on a positive note. Let's roll, you guys.

Arrested: 11/20
Charged with: Drug trafficking, marijuana possession, carrying a concealed firearm
Now that's what I'm talking about: Backwards face tattoo of Florida, a sheet music tattoo on the neck, dozens of purple hair ties, and a facial expression that suggests that this dude is as upset as being arrested for multiple felonies as he would be for losing a dollar. That's what Mugshots Friday is all about.

Arrested: 11/20
Charged with: Marijuana possession
I will never say no to someone making a duckface at the camera.

Arrested: 11/16
Charged with: Grand theft auto, burglary
Honestly, if you're going to get a ridiculous eye tattoo, why not go full bore and ink up your whole face? Area codes, tears, a Camaro on fire ... instead, you just get a single insane marking that makes it look like you were trying to paint your face like a member of KISS but got bored of it after five minutes.

Arrested: 11/18
Charged with: Trespassing, resisting arrest, assaulting a police officer
You know when you get in argument, and it gets more and more heated, and by the end of it, you're not even in the original argument any more but just yelling expletives and throwing stuff? This is the facial equivalent of that moment.

Arrested: 11/18
Charged with: Disorderly conduct, drinking in public
Old dredlocks never die, they just fade away in a cloud of weed smoke.

Arrested: 11/17
Charged with: Marijuana possession
I imagine the cops booked this guy still high, which would explain the frightened side-eye at the imaginary spiders crawling out of the walls.

Arrested: 11/21
Charged with: Cocaine possession, possession of a controlled substance
And this Thanksgiving season, be thankful that this dude is nowhere near you or your family. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
