What the heck is wrong with people?

This has been popping up all over my Facebook newsfeed and I wanted to do a little research to see if it was real.  Well as horrifying as that is, it's absolutely real.  And awful.

The tattoo "artist" (I prefer to call him "Moron with a tattoo machine") was the little boys dad.  This video dipicts the little boy being held down by his MOTHER while his dad gives him a tattoo that says "DB" for "Daddy's Boy."  This video is from 2009, but it's just now been gaining steam on the internet, and outraging people everywhere.

According to the NyDailyNews Eugene Ashley was sentenced to $300 fine and 12 months probation for tattooing his son. AND he was DRUNK while tattooing his THREE year old son (Notice my emphasis on the words).  He claims he "doesn't remember" tattooing his son.

Good news though, CPS has taken the child and he is now living with his uncle and his uncle said while the boy does remember the tattoo he did say that it hurt "a little bit."

Poor little guy.  I think his dad should have gotten way more than basically a slap on the wrist.  What do you think?


The story above does not match the video.  The source I found said the two were connected, but more sources are saying they aren't.  As soon as I find out the full story I'll bring it to you.  From what I  have heard from this source the video is current and is from Cuba, not many details are known about what the tattoo is and if anything has happened to the parents.

Check out the video of the tot getting the tattoo.  If you want my opinion I think this is cruel, and maybe it's those freakish female hormones in me that kicked in but when I saw this video it almost made me sick I just wanted to steal the poor kid away from those people.
