In Hawai'i, I'd think it looks like a hairy mo'o (lizard/gecko). Which is normally considered a good luck creature ...altho I would NOT go as far to carve that into my hair.
I mostly ignore them since they keep the bugs like ants and cockroaches under control. Only place I do NOT let them runnin loose is in my bedroom. Their poo is VERY corrosive and I usually use black linens. White dots burned into my fabrics drives nuts!
