James “Jacob” Thompson, 22, was arrested in Texas on a bizarre mix of charges, including the allegation that he agreed to cut out a teenage girl’s birth control device in her arm before giving her a tattoo. What is amazing is that this may not be the worst tattooing crime recorded this week. Australia may have topped Texas this week in the most bizarre felonious tattoo.
Thompson allegedly gave a tattoo to a 16-year-old girl at a party and agreed to remove the birth control implant. What is interesting is the charges: in addition to tattooing at an unlicensed facility and tattooing a prohibited person, he was charged with practicing medicine without a license.
They also found 14 outstanding warrants for Thompson and an unmarked pill bottle containing once pill of ecstasy. He was charged with possession of a controlled substance as well.
In the meantime, in Ipswich, Australia, a tattoo artist has been charged with assault after tattooing his friend’s back. The two had had an argument and the friend wanted a yin and yang symbol. Instead, the artist tattooed a giant penis on his back with a slogan suggesting that he was gay (The slogan was reportedly misspelled to add insult to injury).
When he showed it to his girlfriend at home, she immediately informed him that “I don’t think it’s the tattoo you were after.”
