Art that adorns the flesh…

Not What He Wanted

Sometimes revenge is necessary.  Heh, I don’t begrudge anyone for a bit of clever, harmless fun when it comes to getting someone back.  Those Jackass dudes are a good example.  They play pranks on one another, there’s a nice little back and forth rivalry going on between them sometimes.  It’s funny.  I remember back in the day when I was a pizza boy, some ass thought it was funny to give me a three cent tip.  I came back the next night around midnight and egged his house good.  I laughed all the way home.

Okay, some of you might think that egging some guy’s house because of a bad tip is crossing the line.  Hey, maybe it was, but I was a kid and I don’t feel bad about it now.  No one got hurt.  But it does bring up an interesting point – there is a line that you can cross with some acts of revenge and I’m pretty much positive that a 21-year-old Australian tattoo artist recently crossed that line in a big, huge way.  Hell, he didn’t just cross it, he catapulted himself miles past it.

Here’s the story: a 25-year-old man came into a tattoo studio in Ipswich, Queensland, Australia and asked the artist to tattoo a yin-and-yang symbol as well as a Chinese dragon on his back.  Well, I guess the two men got to arguing about something that hasn’t been made clear at this point, but they eventually made up enough for the tattooist to get down to work on the tattoo.  The thing is, the tattooist didn’t tattoo a yin-and-yang symbol along with the Chinese dragon.  Nope.  He just tattooed a 15-inch dick on the dude’s back.  Apparently he also put some text in there that made some sort of spurious allegations regarding the client’s sexuality.

Again, I have to maintain that an act of revenge like that is guilty of pretty seriously crossing the line.  I guess it goes to show that you should never piss off your tattoo artist before they’re about to lay down some heavy duty work on your back.  I don’t know, maybe it’s all just a case of the artist not hearing the guy properly when he came in.  Maybe he mistook “yin-and-yang” for “15-inch wang.”  It kind of sounds similar…
