At Fault for Drunken Tattoos

Geek HTML Tags Tattoos On Nape

'Kick me' tattooed on the back. 'Spank me' inked on someone's backside, from tattooing the name of an ex-partner to silly cartoons. A drunk tattoo is one of the few - and costly - mistakes that stays with you after a night out.

South Australia introduced a law in 2012 making it illegal to perform any body modification procedures on intoxicated people. The tattoo artist or similar are allowed to defend themselves on reasonable grounds by proving that they did not know the client was intoxicated at the time of the procedure.

But not only can a tattoo be embarrassing, it can be costly as well in the long run.

On top of paying up to $100 to get the tattoo, regrettable customers can fork out hundreds for its removal.
