Art that adorns the flesh…

Hard to Stomach

July 6th, 2010 by

Aside from all the stuff about tattoo artists, tattoos, new products, etc, etc, sometimes I see something that just needs to be mentioned on the Tattoo Blog for no other reason than it ranks incredibly high on the idiot meter.  To be honest, I don’t really like mentioning a lot of news on the blog that associates tattoos with criminals.  I mean, yeah there are criminals out there who have tattoos, but there are also criminals out there who don’t have tattoos.  To focus on news that specifically relates to tattooed people is to do more harm than good to the tattoo community, in my opinion.

All that being said, sometimes you just have to admit that funny is funny and leave it at that.  The incident in question occurred in Fredericksburg, Virginia.  A shirtless drunkard, one Daniel Beavers (23), decided that it would be a good idea to throw rocks at some cars.  After successfully smashing the rear windows of three different cars, Beavers fled the scene but was quite easily picked up by the police some time later.  Why?  Well for starters, as I previously said, he was shirtless.  The clincher however, would have to be that he had a very easy to spot tattoo on his stomach: his last name.  Yes, that’s right, dude had “Beavers” tattooed across his gut.

First off, what is this guy, five?  I stopped throwing rocks at cars around the same time that I learned to read.  Second, if you can’t handle your booze and you’re prone to committing criminal acts, maybe your name – first or last, it really makes no difference which – is not the best thing to have tattooed in huge letters on your body.  And third, if you’re stupid enough to do both of the aforementioned things, then you might want to consider wearing a shirt.

Daniel Beavers was released on $2,500 bond.
