Man Decides To Tattoo His Dog - What He Looks Like Now Has Many Furious

Tattoos are a personal choice. For every person out there that’s a huge advocate of body art, there are plenty of others that find it offputting. As a general rule of thumb, most people will keep their opinions to themselves and see tatoos for what they are: a personal choice. Taking that stance works out pretty well for the most part, but things can get a little hairy when the tattoo artist’s canvas didn’t have a say in what they were being adorned with. That’s what this tattoo artist from Brazil is coming to terms with, as he recently made the mistake of sharing some disturbing pics on social media.

As the Daily Mail reports, Emerson Damasceno is a tattoo artist from Pocos de Caldas in Brazil that’s clearly a big fan of body art. Photos on his social media profiles feature his various tattoos and piercings, but he crossed the line with a recent pic. That pic would be of the man’s bull terrier, who has been horribly disfigured with tattoos.

The dog has tattoos on its ears, snout and under its eyes, and it certainly seems like something that Damasceno was quite proud of. Things have changed in his world, as he’s been blasted from all corners for the dog’s disfigurement, and scores of commenters are calling for him to be brought up on charges of animal cruelty.

The pic in question began gaining traction when Brazilian lawyer Fernanda Soares came across it. Soares was outraged, and he did all he could to call attention to the pic. Damasceno subsequently deleted all of his social media profiles, but his girlfriend made a failed attempt at defending him. She claimed that the dog had been tattooed to protect the animal from cancer.

Veterinary experts have thrown a ton of shade on that outrageous theory. Several of them have made it crystal clear that the tattoos provide absolutely no benefit to the animal, and that they may cause it even further problems in the future. No word on whether Damasceno is being investigated by the authorities over the shocking pics.

Man should be locked up for animal cruelty.
