Art that adorns the flesh…

A Tattoo, Sir? Or Shall I Just Taser You?

October 6th, 2010 by

Texas is home to many extremely talented tattooists and a thriving tattoo scene.  With all that great tattooing going on, there’s bound to be some bad tattooing going on, or in this particular case, some just plain weird tattooing going on.

To be fair, this article isn’t exactly the best journalism around and it certainly isn’t overly informative so I guess we’ll just have to take it with a grain of salt.  That being said, from what the article says, this is some seriously messed up, freakish shit.

Apparently one Alexander Hill went to see Galveston, Texas tattooist James Pantalion Jr. for a tattoo last February.  Hill claims that he fell asleep while Pantalion was tattooing him and when he awoke, Pantalion Tasered him twice: once in the leg and once in the chest.  Unsurprisingly enough, Hill is now suing Pantalion for Tasering him because he didn’t actually want to be Tasered, he just wanted to be tattooed.  Hill filed his lawsuit this past September 24th.

What the hell?  Did I miss something?  I don’t know about you but it seems to me like somebody isn’t quite telling the whole story here.  Logic tells me that unless James Pantalion Jr. is a total psychopath, that Tasering a tattoo client for no apparent reason isn’t the best thing for business.  So I’m thinking that the clue to all this falls with Alexander Hill who just might have a couple of skeletons in his closet.

I eagerly await more news in the coming months.  I’ll keep you posted…
