'Poo tattoo' exposed as hoax ?

The story of a man who tattooed a picture of a pile of excrement on his ex-lover is thought to be a hoax.

The story alleged that Rossie Brovent was suing her ex-boyfriend for $100,000 after he inked the image of a pile of excrement on her back as revenge for cheating on him. It now appears however that the entire story may be a hoax after an image of the tattoo on her back was sourced back to a posting on Fail Blog from 2009. In addition no record of the alleged lawsuit has been found.

"It seemed the perfect act of revenge - a jilted lover cruelly tattooed a picture of flies over excrement on his ex-girlfriend's back and the photo swept the internet."

Off topic but still on the topic of unwanted tattoos, a Queensland man had the outline of a penis (you know, those really crappy things that you sometimes see graffitied by idiots?) on his back by a mate after a disagreement. Heres the story, but it doesn't show any photos for the younger viewers: The courtcase passed and I watched it on the news. I think he succeeded and the lawsuit was in his favour. A tattooist managed to cover "it" up with a sword handle and hilt in a tattoo of a snake/d... [More]

So if half of folk have above normal intelligence and half have below normal intelligence, does that mean that nobody has normal intelligence? I suddenly feel very scared to be surrounded by people with abnormal intelligence. Then again, what is that anyway? This story was in our local rag. I thought it was quite funny, even if it is a hoax. Peace.

I'm with you there, we'd be talking scarification or a serious traffic cone implant or maybe some EXTREME body modification......all she got was a turd on her back and it wasn't even a real one. Nothing to complain about. Peace

How could a guy tatoo this on a girl back in one shot without her even looking at what he was doing...if someone beleived this...well i have a lot on the moon for sale.... You cannot tatoo such a design on a person in one seance, this would take many seance and the girl would have looked at it in a mirror.

Not so simple on the surface of things, I think there may be in their own hype

Not true, that design doesn't have the complexity to require multiple sittings. Yes it would likely be done in multiple sittings, but it could just as easily be done all at once.
