A Massachusetts man was charged with illegally tattooing a reference to a face-paint wearing rap duo on a teenager after allegedly boozing him up.
George Doyle, 22, is accused of assaulting a 16 year old and demanding payment for inking the word “Juggallo” on the teen’s body, the Telegram & Gazette reported.
Juggalo — though unfortunately misspelled on the victim’s chest — is the name for the devoted followers of the rap duo Insane Clown Posse, a controversial group known for violent lyrics and drug use. The ICP also has its own social network and even an FBI file.
Cops in Spencer became aware of Doyle’s artwork on March 5, after a school official learned that he’d been allegedly threatening the teen in an attempt to get paid for the tat. Doyle is accused of tattooing the boy after he’d “gotten him messed up with alcohol,” according to a police report obtained by the paper.
Police went to Doyle’s home and claim that they found amateur tattoos on his body similar to the one on the teen.
He was arrested and charged with illegal tattooing, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon — in reference to the tattoo needle — and providing alcohol to an underaged person.
The teen isn’t the only victim of a misspelled Juggalo tattoo. Rapper Coolio got a large tattoo on his arm depicting the group’s mascot — a “hatchet man” — and the words, “Jugalo Cool,” which TMZ reported was “one ‘G’ shy of actually being cool.”
