Say What Now? Tattoo Artist Jailed After Tattooing a Penis on a Woman Who Asked for a Yin-Yang Symbol


An Austrian tattoo artist is now spending three-and-a-half years in prison for tattooing a penis and the F-word on the back of a 21-year-old woman.

She went to the shop to get a yin-yang sign.

According to Austria’s the Local, the woman described what she wanted, and the artist designed a template for the desired tattoo and showed it to her before she went under the needle.

But when she went home to remove the bandage to look at her new tattoo in the mirror, she discovered he’d — ahem — deviated from her request and alerted the authorities. When asked why he’d subjected this woman to walking around with a penis on her back for the rest of her life, the 21-year-old artist replied, “Just because.” 

He was sentenced to three and a half years in jail and will reportedly be held in an institution for “mentally abnormal offenders.” Maybe his victim can form a support group with the guy with the Instagram tattoo and Ben Affleck.

Poor girl. Hopefully she’s able to get it covered or removed rather quickly.
