THIS HAD BEEN DRIVING ME NUTS FOR FOREVER.
So there. Now I have figured it out.
People who I suspect have thought about this less than me:

"Facial-recognition technology is quickly becoming a mainstay of commercial and government surveillance systems. While it can provide benefits in automation and security, it is also a threat to privacy. Sophisticated algorithms can already extract information about your gender, age and even mood from a single image, and then link those physical attributes to commercial or government databases."

The most cyberpunk post on this website, possibly ever.
For future reference.
the cyber revolution is literally coming upon us
shadowrun fashion suddenly makes so much sense
I’ve literally been talking about this for years. In one of the cyberpunk 2020 rulebooks, it talks about why fashion evolved the way it did. Part of it was a collective want to be individual, but after a certain amount of time, people began to love the crazy fashion. The second part was that it made it practically impossible to track individuals using cameras.
That’s why shifting facial tattoos, iridescent hair, and high collars are so popular in cyberpunk worlds.
Because although all that “spy-tech” they use to track people can be used and is marketed to us to be used for the collective good, it WILL be used only for the good of those in power.
SHIIIIIT THIS IS METAL
