They can turn your body into a living masterpiece, but tattoo artists also have the power to make your life hell, every time you look in the mirror. Case in point, Rosie Brovent, who got more than she bargained for when she let her boyfriend tattoo her back.
Just to be clear from the start, this really isn’t verified news, since it first appeared on a rather obscure blog, with no link to any established media outlet. Still, I thought it was simply too cool not to feature on OC. Tattoo artist, Ryan L. Fitzjerald and his now ex-girlfriend Rosie Brovent, both residents of a trailer park in Dayton, Ohio, are the main protagonists one of the weirdest/funniest stories I’ve read in a while. Brovent is accusing her ex of tattooing a huge steaming pile of crap with flies buzzing around it, instead of a scene from Narnia.
Apparently Fitzjerald had found out Rosie was cheating on him with a long-time friend of his and instead of confronting them, cooked up an ingenious way of getting even. The guy pretended everything was ok and by drinking “a bottle of cheap whine and doing tequila shots” with his girlfriend, he got her to sign a consent form, before doing any tattooing, that said the design was “at the artist’s discretion”. So instead of a fairy-tale scene from Narnia, Rosie Brovent woke up to a giant pile of excrement on her back.
The outraged woman first tried to have Ryan Fitzjerald charged with assault, but because she had signed the consent form, she had to settle with a lawsuit for $100,000 in damages. She claims she was passed out for most of the time the tattoo artist executed the hideous tattoo.
