A bit of a dick

This is kinda funny, in a weird way.

From the Courier Mail and SMH today....
  • A 21-year-old man has been charged by police in Ipswich for allegedly tattooing a penis on a man's back - instead of the image he had requested.

    The 25-year-old victim had been visiting the man, an amateur tattooist, at his home in Bundamba last Wednesday when he was talked into getting a tattoo. He wanted a yin and yang symbol with some dragons, but was instead shocked to discover the 40cm tattoo was of a penis with an obscene slogan. The key word in the slogan was also misspelled, implying the man is gay.

    It will cost the 25-year-old alleged victim about $2000 to remove the lewd tattoo.

    Police said the pair had a disagreement before the tattooing.

    Ipswich Detective Constable Paul Malcolm said the victim was mortified by what happened to him.

    "The victim wasn't interested (in a tattoo) at first but he was talked into it and he said he wanted a Yin and Yang symbol with some dragons," Det Malcolm told the Queensland Times on Tuesday.

    "The bloke started doing the tattoo and there was another bloke standing there watching saying, `Mate, it's looking really good.'

    "He was told not to go out into the sun and not to show anyone for a few weeks.

    The man now faces considerable cost to have the image removed. Police said the tattooing followed an argument between the men, during which the tattooist allegedly took offence at something the other man said.

    The 21-year-old is due to appear in Ipswich Magistrates Court on November 15 charged with two counts of assault occasioning bodily harm and one charge relating to the Public
    Safety Act.
No photos have shown up as yet. People are going to say he looks like a bit of a dick when his back is turned.
