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.

  • You may remember GoldenPalace.com from other stunts that Jewlicious has reported on. Well, despite the tastelessness of this stunt, they were pretty cool about it and threw in an extra $5000 above what they agreed to pay. Well, maybe because of the tastelessness of it. Whatever, at least someone is thinking of the children.

  • I beleive she copied this btw. Someone had put on auction that she would wear a bikini every day to the beach all summer and was accepting advertising. It bid to 14K, but the buyer reneged.

  • TM, you, of all people, should understand that the rising costs of Jewish education private school probably drove her to such measures…

  • If you read all the things that Goldenpalace.com have bid on, you begin to see a charity to their actions. They bid on items that they will never use and normally it’s for a good cause. Yes, they do promote themselves, but many times the value of their bids has nothing to do with their self promotion. They guys actually have good heart.

  • Estoy profundamente dolido e impactado por la noticia que acabo de ver. No puedo creer que el FUCKING NEOLIBERALISMO haya podido llegar a tal extremo. Es realmente triste y todos nosotros somos responsables por esto. Es necesario TOMAR CONCIENCIA y llamar a la ORGANIZACIÓN POPULAR PARA COMBATIR AL NEOLIBERALISMO.
