tattoo voodoo 2

Just the other day I talked about a tattooed penis, and now there’s news about a penis tattoo. This apparently happened last week, in Argentina:

A football fan is suing a tattooist who drew a penis on his back instead of his favourite team’s badge.

The teenager asked to have the Boca Juniors logo etched on his back.

But the tattoo artist was a supporter of rival team River Plate and decided to have some fun at his young customer’s expense.

The victim, who cannot be named, said: ‘I could not see what he was tattooing because he didn’t have a mirror. I only saw it when I got home and showed it to my parents.’

Yeah, I’ll bet mom and dad were just a bit suprised when junior came home and hiked up his shirt to show off his cool new tat. “Uh, son, that doesn’t look much like the Boca badge to me…”

A police officer involved in the case described it as “unbelievable.” You think?

I suppose this shows exactly how rabid soccer/football fans can be. It also indicates why no one — particularly someone underage — should go get a tattoo by themselves, and why you shouldn’t believe a tattoo artist who tells you he doesn’t have a mirror.

I hope they make the artist pay for a cover-up tattoo (done by someone else, of course), or laser removal of the offending, um, member.

  1. The fact is, of course, that the tattooist betrayed his client’s trust. No matter how careful you are, this can always happen. The young are especially vulnerable because their over-confidence leads them into trouble.

    At least this betrayal wasn’t life threatening and the young man will learn a valuable lesson from it, we hope. Not that that in any way diminishes the fault: the tattooist should be banned from the profession for life (pour encourager les autres 😉 ).

  2. Of course, one might say that the tattooist had created everyman’s secret dream – two penises to go with his two hands…

  3. I can hear scribbling all over the country as law professors write this episode into exam questions for their course in Torts and in Remedies.
