Why It Is A Bad Idea To Anger Your Tattoo Artist

    Or at least if you do, get the work done by someone else.

      Ryan Fitzgerald has been sued for $100,000 by his ex-girlfriend, Rossie Brovent. She claims that he had agreed to tattoo a scene from Narnia on her back. What was actually rendered there was a depiction of a steaming pile of excrement with several flies hovering above it.

     Evidently Mr. Fitzgerald had learned that she had been cheating on him with a long-time friend of his and rather than confront her, had begun to hatch a scheme for revenge. At first she had tried to have him charged with assault, but he had the foresight to have her sign a consent waiver stating that the design was "at the artist's discretion".

    Coincidentally, the finished product does match some critics review of the second Narnia film.

Be seeing you.

  1. I saw this this morning. I think that waiver may help in the civil suit as well as the "assault" charge.... It said "artist's discretion." Well......

  2. There has been some indication that the story attached to the photo may not be accurate. It happens sometimes even with usually reliable sources on the internet.

    Still funny in any case.
