Below we present you the anatomy of a face tat. William Bottoms Jr. decided to turn his face into a doodle pad back in 2015, then showed off its progress in mug shots from 2017 and 2019. Do you think you could be an impartial juror for that profile?? His defense attorney is skeptical.

Bottoms is charged with second-degree murder in the 2017 deaths of two men. He allegedly got paranoid while his girlfriend drove them around, then opened fire on the two men in the back seat.

Megan Marie Gaylord was his girlfriend and is scheduled to be the star witness for of the  prosecution. She told investigators that the four of them did drugs together before Bottoms killed the men.

Interestingly, Bottoms’ similarly-tatted twin brother was killed in April by Mississippi authorities trying to arrest him for being a felon in possession of a gun.

Here’s the progression of William’s face from 2015-2019. Perhaps there’s a tribute to his brother in there somewhere, but good luck trying to find it!
