Where was this taken?  They intend to look intimidating; it makes me wonder just what it is they are compensating for!  

It can't have been a picnic, having their faces tattooed though, so they must be pretty tough.  But the man on the right's ear..ugh ...so many men are going in for this sort of thing in the UK now. It's revolting :P (imho)

The picture was taken in Camden Town London.  The area is full of tattoo places.

I have seen the ear thingy growing more common myself.  I saw a guy with a hole big enough to fit in a poker chip.

That are traditional Maori tattoos, everyone of it is unique and has a special meaning.
I like this photo.

Thank you for posting.

I'm impressed that you still took the shot! Often people like this aren't as bad as they seem. I've seen this guy [link] on the streets quite a few times and he's a cool person :)

I agree with you on that .. I try not to judge on appearances .. but I I have got into trouble a number of times and sometimes for the most innocuous shots.

I was actually arrested for taking this picture [link] I was in colombo (Sri Lanka) during the peak of the civil war there. The buildings on the right on the beach front were actually Intelligence Headquarters of the Sri Lankan government.

And This one [link] was also a very close shave.

Internalized sociopathy that gets externalized as pure mayhem. You can image Roman legions facing this tribe and simply turning away.

Well one doesnt really have to go so far back ... to Roman time .. "Internalized sociopathy that gets externalized as pure mayhem", as you so aptly described was so very evident in the mass rioting that started in London and spread through all the major cities. The images of mayhem that were captured by the reporters so evident of this.

I think there is a considered difference between riots caused by economic fear, frustration and hooliganism when placed against tribal behavior showing a permanent commitment to, if not violence, the projection of violence towards the mainstream - - the latter is what you captured in this image. It's of little difference, ultimately, however. The point is to avoid both whenever possible.

I agree with you .. avoid both when ever possible ..
I think I missed your interpretation of the image .. yes I do understand the image that it forms in ones mind.
I was responding to your observation and in particular to the word sociopath, one definition of which is "A person, as a psychopathic personality, whose behavior is antisocial and who lacks a sense of moral responsibility or social conscience"
and abstracts the behaviour from the cause of behaviour.
As one who has experienced it with its origins ranging from ritualised behaviour to frustrated vandalism .. of course i use the word Vandalism as it is derived from the behaviour of the East Germanic Tribe .. The Vandals ..
The reputation of the Vandals among Renaissance and Early Modern writers was that of the barbarian people which sacked and looted Rome. (That kind of brings us back to the Romans ..)
But Im sure we can have a long discussion on this ..but this isnt the forum .. or is it ..
I guess its one of my few photographs that has evoked any real idea .. most of my other images I would put down to be at best mere eye candy.
And Thank you for your very astute observations

Certainly this image of yours involved a level of risk in the taking that the other images in your gallery do not suggest. Here is an entirely fashionable version of the heavily tattooed: [link]
I will make the assumption that he was much less dangerous to shoot - - of course he does have some affinity for the camera given the Hasselblad on his stomach.
