Boy, 14, Forced To Get A Tattoo By Bullies

An American teenager has claimed that he was bullied into getting a tattoo of three offensive images onto his buttocks.

The 14-year-old boy suffers from ADD, and has been harassed by the group for an extensive amount of time. The bullies tricked the boy into coming over to their house, with the promise that they'd stop bullying him if he had a tattoo. They also threatened to "kick the crap out of him" if he refused to get it.

The boy's parents found out after a teacher at his school overheard some students talking about it, and discovered that mobile phone images of the tattoo were making the rounds.

The boy has been checked out by a doctor, and physically he's fine. The situation could have been even worse, as the tattooing was carried out by the bullies. Currently the police have charged four adults with two counts of simple assault, endangering the welfare of a minor, tattooing without a licence, indecent exposure, criminal threatening and breach of bail.

It's also been reported that a 15-year-old has been charged, who was alleged to have bought the tattoo gun for $30 as a souvenir.
