Imagine getting a tattoo, going home, and realizing that some of the lines are a little crooked, or the shading looks uneven. That would be pretty annoying, right?
Now, imagine getting a tattoo, going home, and realizing that instead of the design you asked for, the artist tattooed a FUCKING DICK ON YOUR BACK.
Yeah, I wouldn't be too stoked either. But that's what happened to this poor 21-year-old Austrian woman after she asked her pal- also a 21-year-old- "hobby tattooist" (aka scratcher) for a simple, peaceful ying yang tattoo on her back. He drew the correct stencil, showed it to her, got her approval- and then totally went rogue. Homegirl went home to find a horribly rendered penis along with the words "FUCK YOU" tattooed on her back instead of a zen little ying yang. Some friend, am I right?
The "artist"- and I'm using that term VERY loosely- was charged accordingly with causing bodily harm (among other things) and taken to court. When asked by the judge why the FUCK (probably not the judge's actual words) he would do such a thing, he replied "Just because." Oh, okay. Seems legit.
The "hobby tattooer" was sentenced to three and a half years in jail- which is cool, because, that's three and a half years that some poor person won't end up with a middle-school, bathroom-stall dick illustration permanently on their body.
As for the poor recipient- things are looking up. Danny Shoestar, an ACTUAL tattooer hailing from Vienna, has offered to save the day with a brand new backpiece for the lady. As of now, the plan is to cover that travesty by blasting over it with a beautiful, black, inky woman with an abstract background to cover as much of that bullshit underneath as possible. From the plans we've seen, it's definitely a much better option. The cover-up is scheduled to go down this week and we can't wait to see how it turns out.
