I don't know how to draw with red lines. What you've outlined isn't the face that seems "most obvious" to me, but there seem to be multiple presenses here. The one I see looks a bit like (I hate to say this) Elvis. If Ringo were wearing socks, the eyes of the face are at about the level the tops of his socks would be. The nose and mouth are about where the bottom of Ringo's pant leg would presumably be. The face is glancing downward. As I said before, there seem to be bits and pieces of others in the photo; not unusual in places where a number of ghosts are present, in my experience. (Yeah, I used to go ghost-hunting in cemetaries with cameras and friends. Not a wise thing to do, btw. )
This one then?
Yes, that one! But part of what you call the mustache is the mouth, and what you've labeled "mouth" is the front of his chin. Your "eyebrows" include the eyes. (He's glancing downward somewhat.) It's a very human-looking, normal face; not monsterous. Consider the right-hand sloping side of what you've called "mustache" as a cigarette in his mouth (the left-hand side of "mustache" is his lips together) and you've got it.
No one has commented on the "devil face" in brown in the very first picture of this thread, above, with the jackal head above it, but I don't know if double exposures can be counted as valid.

I see a lot of "devil-goat" heads and such, but I see them so readily and so quickly in almost every picture posted that it makes me think that I would see them in any picture that was mirrored like this....
I did actually mean for someone to come up with these shapes in non beatles pics but hey, who cares?
I think it's clear that they are probably a phenomena that tends to happen in any "reflected" image, it makes sense to me anyway.
Its a phenomenon of the mind. The human brain has like, face specific software, a area dedicated to face recognition. Mirrorring a pictoral image will somewhere produce a bi-lateral symmetry that turns on the brain's seek and identify software.
It's no different than folding a piece of paper and doing cut-outs with scissors. Voila. Faces. Odd looking ones, sometimes, by chance, interesting looking ones. Rorsahck.
Any mirrored pattern that allows the suggestion of the borders of a head, and maybe eyes and nose.
A pencil drawing...a dot matrix landscape.........an ink spill.........a bass drum head......oh, sorry, that last one was about a secret message........
