His forehead tattoo was a quote about heartbreak


Mr. Pannorthorn, a 20-year-old man from Thailand, decided to get a quote inked on his forehead on 10th July 2021 – it read, “Love hurts, but getting inked is my revenge.”

This was imprinted after his partner of five months broke up with him. But the tattoo apparently isn’t only dedicated to his previous partner; it includes everyone else he had crossed roads with, according to Sanook.
