Australian Tattoo Artist Allegedly Inks Lewd Image on Friend's Back

A 21-year-old Australian man has been charged with assault after allegedly tattooing an image of a penis on his friend's back, according to the Courier Mail.

The 25-year-old victim was visiting the amateur tattoo artist at the man's home last week when he was talked into getting a tattoo, according to the paper.

The man wanted a yin and yang symbol tattooed on his back, but allegedly got a 16-inch tattoo of a penis with an obscene gesture instead.

Australian authorities said the incident followed an argument between the two.

The victim also says he was punched and thrown out of the man's house.

The 21-year-old tattoo artist has been charged with two counts of assault occasioning bodily harm and is due to appear in court next month.
