caption contest, face with strange painting

I know it’s inconceivable that our weekly caption contest could be late, but there was a holiday, and I had company, and I had stuff to do…  (I could give more excuses if you want, but then this might be even later, and then it would be your fault that it’s late, and it’s not like I need more excuses.)

Anyway, here it is.  The photo features a person wearing lots of makeup.  No context is given, so you get to make it up.  There’s also not much going on, so you might have to provide a backstory or flashback or exposition.  Here’s some potential ideas: Is it war paint?  Is it a gang sign?  Is it some new, trendy style of makeup?  Is it someone you know?  Was it a prank?  What will happen next?

    TW’s new job wasn’t exactly what he had hoped for, having his face painted with a ‘no fish allowed’ sign turned out to be more than just a little embarrasing… but hey… at least he wasn’t having to dance around holding a pizza sign advertisement.

    Due to an extreme allergy to high-explosive bombs, Jane was required to wear medical warning symbols at all times.

    “This war paint means I’m tough! You just don’t mess with people who have a bomb painted on their face! I’m explosive! I’ll open a can of whoop-butt on you before you even have time to crap your pants.”
