Sure; there are countries with taboos around, for example, tattoos.
However, given that we run many encyclopaedias containing articles on
pretty much everything, taboo or no taboo (including ink!), anyone easily
offended is /going/ to be. There's a saying about horses and doors that
Brandon does place his tattoo first. The tattoo, you will note, reads
"courage". It's what is known as a statement. Brandon is endorsing being
bold, not endorsing being inked.

together and are specially made for that page. I believe you shouldn't
destroy the lay-out or style by adding "personal" pictures. Otherwhise you
should lose the style completly.
Secondly we are a world wide organisation, and there are still enough
countries where tats are not accepted yet. So it can be wise to try to
minimise the things on pictures that can be offensive for some people.
And as last. Brandon places his tattoo first and makes his face blurry.
Thats why I started posting. If both the tattoo would be vissible and his
face I wouldn't have any problems at all.
