I *LOVE* doing this for my boyfriend, everyone thinks he has a tattoo on his head and Ive had a few professional stylists comment on it as well.

I bleached his hair and then used black dye for the leopard print Cheesy



He feels abused if I take too many pictures haha



This one came after when the leopard print side had grown a bit he wanted an off centre mohawk



And these are from G.B.H



I had a green and black mohawk



It only takes about 15 mins and looks awesome for gigs Cheesy

What do you think?  Smiley

um this is kinda awesome.

my BF would NEVER let me do that not because he's not as hardcore as your bf (hehe)  but because he has a vendetta against leopard print!  (he's more into metal than punk, so I let him get away with it).  

Anywho, you guys are too cute. Tongue  Love the hair!! (both of y'all!)

Yes please on the tutorial! Have you ever have a problem with the black bleeding? I have wanted to do this to my sides for a while but fear of it bleeding into my rainbow and destroying it has stopped me.

I've always loved the leopard print hair look.  I've actually heard of some people using a celery stalk to make the little circles and half circles.
