Brad Pitt @ GQ Italy

Brad Pitt is the cover boy of the October issue of GQ, Italian edition. His faux revolver tattoo brings to mind the tear drop ink that convicted criminals in the US get on their faces, symbolizing they've already committed murder, in or out of jail. It says they that they are real "bad-asses" or incapable to shed real tears. In Australia, the teardrop has an entirely different meaning. It is forcibly marked on convicts who are accused child molesters. This mark is then used as a justification for the beatings and abuse of the wearer. The teardrop in this case, represents the tears that the convict will cry, eternally. How lovely is that?

On a lighter note, I bet there are a lot of people out there that would love to "bang-bang" Mr.Pitt, but not in the literal sense if you know what I'm saying...
