A man faces criminal charges for tattooing a 16-inch semblance of a penis on his friend's back, much to his friend's surprise. During the tattooing, another man helped out by complimenting the victim on the great-looking art being tattooed, which was supposed to be a Yin-Yang symbol. The victim was then told to go home, avoid the sun, and not show anyone for weeks. Instead, he showed his live-in girlfriend, who filled him in on the truth.

Apparently the victim then went to the artist's home, where they got into an altercation, and the victim got punched in the face. Police charged the tattoo artist with two counts of assault occasioning bodily harm. It could cost the victim $2,000 to have the tattoo removed, along with the misspelled phrase suggesting he's gay.
