Always tip your artist.

From the “There has to be more to this story” department, several news sources have picked up on this sordid little nugget.

A North Carolina resident was apparently scheduled to have a tattoo done by an acquaintance of his, yet inexplicably, a fight broke out between the two.

This, however, was no ordinary donnybrook; the man seeking the tattoo ended up not only getting his ears cut off, but was also castrated with a butcher’s knife. Then, without even so much as an aftercare sheet, he was thrown into a car and instructed to leave.

Thankfully, he’s recovering well in a Winston-Salem hospital, and his alleged attackers have since been charged.

At press time, Mr. Blonde could not be reached for comment.

    OH COME ON you cheap fucking kids. TIP YOUR *tattoo* ARTIST (UNLESS it’s the shop owner.)
    Example: Would YOU tip Jonathan Antin (BRAVO Channel’s “BLOWOUT”) for a haircut? Duhhh, NO! For being an EGOTISTICAL ASSHOLE maybe. (But don’t EVER tip people for the sake of just “being themselves” unless it is REALLY amusing.
