Mustache Monday: Caravaggio

Caravaggio, well known as an Italian artist of old.

Caravaggio, less known for his expansive facial growth.

Can we talk about the eyebrows? Granted, this is a self portrait, so maybe he just had a flawed mirror, but they loop all the way down to the level of his ear! We don't know whether to be impressed or depressed by this train wreck. Who knew there could be something worse than the unibrow in the way of eyebrow grooming? But let's take the eyebrows off the table for a moment. After all, this is MUSTACHE Monday. The mustache itself isn't terrible, except that it perpetuates his "I'm a moody artist" look. It actually has a nice shape to it, and is trimmed nicely. The mustache could be compared to a friendly, fuzzy caterpillar hanging out on his upper lip. That's cool, right? It also provides a parallel between the eyebrows and the 'stache. (We know, we said we wouldn't go there, but it was inevitable).

Caravaggio, the fifth man in our search for a decent mustache. Let's see how he fared:

Size: 2/5
Originality: 2/5
Style: 3/5
Out of a possible 15, Caravaggio scored a mere 7. Not too impressive.

It's a good thing we weren't evaluating the eyebrows!
