Art that adorns the flesh…

The Worst Customer Ever

February 7th, 2010 by

I’m not a tattoo artist, but I can understand that just like with any other job, being a tattoo artist has its fair share of idiotic customers, customers who fit perfectly into comedian Larry David’s analysis that the customer is not always right and that more often than not, the customer is an asshole.

In short, take the worst customer relations nightmare that you’ve had at your place of work (if you happen to work with customers) and hopefully you still won’t even have come as close to what went down in Monterey, California last July.

Nathan Augustine, 36, of Pacific Grove, California, is to be sentenced to 7 years in prison on March 12th after pleading no contest to two charges of arson.  It all started when Augustine entered Creative Visions tattoo in Monterey and asked for a:

tattoo of a swastika and an image of Obama overlaid with crosshairs…

The artists at Creative Visions all turned Augustine down and wouldn’t tattoo him.  Augustine later returned to throw a Molotov cocktail at the Creative Visions shop.

Wow.  That’s some crazy shit.  But I do have to say, high-fives and much respect to the staff at Creative Visions for sticking their ground.  What’s more, Nathan Augustine received his second arson charge for throwing a Molotov cocktail at a local restaurant.  Apparently they wouldn’t serve crazy redneck assholes.  But that’s just what I heard.
