Oh My LordA Utah woman has tattooed the name of an internet gambling site on her forehead; she sold the space for $10,000 on Ebay, and says that she needed the money to pay for her son’s Jewish education.

“For the all the sacrifices everyone makes, this is a very small one,” she said. “It’s a small sacrifice to build a better future for my son,” she said. “To everyone else, it seems like a stupid thing to do. To me, $10,000 is like $1 million. I only live once, and I’m doing it for my son,” she said.

Tattoo artist Don Brouse said he and his staff spent nearly seven hours Wednesday trying to talk Smith out of putting “GOLDENPALACE.COM” above her face. When he did go through with it, he kept the inch-tall letters close to her hairline, where bangs or a hat could provide some cover.

In light of this story, I’d like to announce that Jewlicious is now accepting applications from those wishing to serve as human billboard to promote this site. Tattooing will be done with henna in order to ensure equal opportunity for people of all levels of observance. Preference, however, will be given to people with unusually large foreheads.
