Woman tattoos face with goldenpalace.com

Oh god, I feel so sorry for this lady.  I know she made the decision on her own, but she obviously didn't have the best upbringing if she has made this decision.  This makes me want to cry.

Online casino tattoos woman's face
By Lester Haines
Published Friday 1st July 2005 12:39 GMT
A Utah woman has become the latest asset in online gambling outfit GoldenPalace.com's eBay preposterous purchase portfolio after accepting $15,000 dollars to have the casino's name permanently tattooed on her forehead.

Karolyne Smith joins the Virgin Mary toasted cheese sandwich and other assorted tat for which Golden Palace has shelled out gambling punters' hard-lost cash.

Back in February, an amply-endowed Glaswegian lass trousered ?422 to bear a temporary Golden Palace tattoo on her heaving cleavage. All good clean fun, we noted at the time.

But Karolyne Smith is altogether another matter. She's not the first case of someone offering their body for permanent advertising - back in 2002, a hard-up eBayer whipped out his todger in an attempt to secure a penile sponsorship deal. In that case, however, the worst that could come of it is that the chap's long-suffering girlfriend would have to have GoldenPalace.com rammed down her throat a couple of times a month.

Smith, on the other hand, now has a url plastered across her face. She claims that she did it to raise funds for her son's private education, enthusing: "I really want to do this. To everyone else, it seems like a stupid thing to do. To me, $10,000 is like $1 million. I only live once, and I'm doing it for my son ... It's a small sacrifice to build a better future for my son."

No it isn't a small sacrifice - it's a bloody daft thing to do for $15k and raises the question as to whether Smith is not a couple of bids short of a auction. To its credit, the tattoo parlour which did the dirty deed - SI TATTOOING in Salt Lake City - reportedly spent seven hours trying to talk her out of it. Well, sort of to its credit, because it went ahead and tattooed the silly woman anyway, but it's the thought that counts...

The Golden Palace take on this, the literally unacceptable face of capitalism, is as follows: "I think this kind of advertising will become increasingly popular as time goes on. It is a perfect way to get attention amid the clutter of advertising that people see every second of every day. Conventional forms of marketing just don't cut it anymore. To get people's attention, you have to stand out from the crowd. In light of Karolyne's story and her intentions to improve her son's education, we have given her additional $5,000 on top of the $10,000 spent on the auction."

Ah, Gawd bless yer philanthropic cotton socks, GoldenPalace.com CEO Richard Rowe. And now go away and consider whether allowing cash-strapped mums to be permanently disfigured is a legitimate way to promote your product. If the answer is yes, here are a few further suggestions from the Vulture Central Strategy Boutique:

well at least she didn't do it so she could go buy crack, or a fancy new car...

Although the casino is obviously dispicable for doing such a thing, I admire the woman for her sacrifice.

i bet she wears enough makeup to cover it anyway, the only people who will see it is her family in the early morning, and very very late at night...

but i bet her husband develops a gambling addiction and blows twice that in a month... :lol:

She probably will... the "I did it for my son" story is an obvious cover-up.
I bet $15k can buy alot of crack these days...

haha Great minds think alike! I had already copied that line to paste, when I read the other posts. :laugh:

a hard-up eBayer whipped out his todger in an attempt to secure a penile sponsorship deal. In that case, however, the worst that could come of it is that the chap's long-suffering girlfriend would have to have GoldenPalace.com rammed down her throat a couple of times a month.

"in times of widespread chaos and confusion, it has been the duty of more advanced human beings - artists, scientists, clowns, and philosophers - to create order. In such times as ours however, when there is too much order, too much m management, too much programming and control, it becomes the duty of superior men and women and women to fling their favorite monkey wrenches into the machinery. To relieve the repression of the human spirit, they must sow doubt and disruption"

"People do it every day, they talk to themselves ... they see themselves as they'd like to be, they don't have the courage you have, to just run with it."
