Tattoo artist facing charges after drawing a penis on his friend

You know it’s time to find new friends when you ask your tattoo buddy for a “yin yang” on your back and you end up with a throbbing penis tat instead.

An Australian man has been charged with assault after reportedly tattooing a 40-centimetre (16-inch) penis on his friend’s back after an argument last month. Queensland police said a 21-year-old was facing two counts of assault — the first for applying the indelible mark and the second for allegedly punching the victim.

Police say that a 25-year-old man went to the alleged offender’s house and “somehow in the course of the conversation the subject of tattoos came up”.  “The victim wasn’t interested at first but he was talked into it and he said he wanted a yin and yang symbol with some dragons.” Unfortunately he got a trouser snake instead of a dragon, and there was no “yin yang” symbol to be seen.

As the artist was drawing the penis, he included some misspelled text about the victim’s sexuality. During this time, another guy was telling the victim that it looked really good.

“The bloke started doing the tattoo and there was another bloke standing there watching saying, ‘Mate, it’s looking really good’.”

Unfortunately, when the victim went to check the completed work, he was punched in the face.

“When he got home he showed it to the person he lives with and she said: ‘I don’t think it’s the tattoo you were after”

The man who allegedly etched the tattoo will also face a public safety charge because he was not a professional tattoo artist and there could be hygiene issues, police said.
