If the dog was under, it's not really cruelty. He's right.

But good lord what an ugly tattoo.

I'm OK with this. Many dogs have tattoos to identify them. All of mine do. This one is just fancy instead of numbers.

It doesn't have to be either/or, subby. One could theoretically weave Tweety Birds and Tasmanian Devils into the tribal armband's design, although very few human beings are actually cool enough to pull off such bold initiative.

Pretty much my take.

Is it just me or did he misspell his dog's name on the tattoo? Unless his dog's name is Dutches.  Is that, like, a term for multiple dutch ovens?

Tattoos are a bit more easily visible than microchips...and don't require a scanner.
All the same, I don't think I'm gonna go the inking route for my clowder...

That's what I noticed once I managed to decode his crappy tattoo.  Some "artist".  Both his "artwork" and spelling are terrible.

As for tattooing animals, there isn't a whole lot society can grumble about until they get rid of branding of livestock and, of course, tattooing horses in the mouth as shown above.  I think it's stupid but no more cruel than ear cropping, tail docking, and all that other crap that people do to dogs.
 
2013-03-31 12:24:40 AM
I guess a collar and tag would be too mainstream for him.  Typical hipster douche bag.  Probably got the dog to use as a fashion accessory.
 
2013-03-31 12:25:16 AM
one of the bunnies we gave a home to came to us with a # tat. i think some people do this with show animals to make sure they get their correct animal back, someone else can't claim.
 
2013-03-31 12:28:35 AM
I used to walk my neighbors 2 Dobermans when I was young, in the 80's before ID chips.  Both of the dogs were tattooed on their bellies with an ID number.

I suppose it's not too bad as long as the dog is under, but for vanity over utility especially now that the utility has been replaced?

 No.

Trash.  And I say this as someone with tattoos....
 
2013-03-31 12:34:08 AM
Dude, it's a pit, the most badass dog there is, and you go and give it basically a tramp stamp.  Shoulda gone for a neck tat, or at least BARK and BITE across the knuckles.

Doesn't matter long as it's a unique identifier.

Interesting that the health dept. gave him a C&D letter for a zoning violation.  Daily Fail reporting, I think.

Most dogs have a pretty high pain tolerance, and the dog doesn't know how silly her tattoo looks. It's probably better than ear or tail docking.

Oh, I agree. This dude put a farking unnecessary, ugly ass tramp stamp on his dog. I'd biatch slap him myself if he showed this to me in person.

Overall point, though, is that in the terms of unnecessary animal cruelty, this is pretty tame. On my personal outrage meter docking tails, docking ears, and removing duclaws all rate much higher than a tattoo.

I'm a big animal rights supporter. But I have no problem with this. We, humans, do a great many things to identify animals, such as branding or tagging. I really don't see why this is a big deal.

As for those that are complaining about spelling errors, there is nothing in the article about why the tatt is spelled that way or why the reporter spelled the dog's name the way that s/he did. I have seen so very many ridiculous spellings for otherwise reasonable names of children over the last decade or more, I don't even really notice it any longer. My great grand daughter's name is Marlie, spelled Marleigh and her mother is Patsy, spelled Patce.

My kid has a wrist band tat that reads "angel" when his arm is raised and "devil" when it hangs down.  Kinda cool, especially the Yin Yang connotation.

My dog has a tattooed blue line about half an inch long right next to his junk. Apparently when they neuter strays around these parts, they put that line there to indicate that no, your eyes are not deceiving you--this dog's testicles have indeed been removed. Seriously, that's the explanation I was given.

He's already got nipples basically right on his junk, so the whole area is a little "busy." And he spends most of his life sleeping in the "cockroach" position, if at all possible with his junk arranged directly in your line of sight,  the goddamn show-off attention whore.

Possibly... but I doubt any decent vet is going to monitor putting a dog under for a cosmetic tattoo in a way that probably wasn't legal - it'd be a large job risk for zoning and health/safety requirements at least, especially considering his own tattoo parlor is closed for not meeting such requirements.  If the dog was under, he probably did it himself, which while less painful is quite a risk for a cosmetic tattoo.

FTA: What do they do when they brand animals and tattoo horses on their ear and brand their cow? You're not abusing them. You're just protecting them so they don't get lost,' Rodriguez said. "

You're trying to rationalize it dumbass. You brand livestock because they're property. You tatt'd your dog because you thought it would be cool and this is the arguement you're going with? Guess what? Are you going to eat your dog later? Because that's what generally happens to sheep and cows. They also get milked and sheared. This shiat on your dog isn't a "brand". You got a wild hair up your ass and decided to give your pit bull a tattoo. Very poor decision IMO. He's your "man's best friend". But too late to persuade you not to.

And what do dogs do during the day? Lie around in stuff. That scarring will render "duches" unreadable and prone to infection for a while. Maybe this guy thought he had some sort of "family crest" he was going for to show the neighborhood who is the bigger bad ass. I dunno. I've chipped a number of pets, I can see the point of an identifying mark, (because dogs and cats and other pets don't grow enough of them already?) or gps in collars (yes they are available) or leg bands on birds or in say, an ear of another animal, but this guy is just being a douche.
 
2013-03-31 02:33:03 AM
Why would he even want a decorative tattoo on the dog right over the nipples on the lower half of the belly?  I guess, with it being a female dogs, there were no balls in the way there, but still...

His latest comments say she was still recovering from general anesthesia the vet administered for cropping her ears (the vet let her leave unconscious?), then he added his own local anesthesia in his basement tattoo parlor before the tat ... and this was supposed to make humans want to come to his tattoo parlor?  He should probably stop talking to the media.

Although then again, maybe none of this raises alarms with his customers.
 
2013-03-31 02:34:53 AM
They only real problem I have with that tattoo is it's a pretty crappy design.  No definition, it's blurry, and a possible misspelling of his dog's name.  I certainly would not want this guy to tattoo me.

I think the youtube he posted tattooing his own hand, playing with his cell and then setting his cellphone directly on the extremely freshly tattooed palm to use a barcode scanner on it was kind of the icing on the cake for that.  Yup, that seems sanitary.
First saying he did it because he was bored, then that it was for ID... first that he put the dog under, then that a vet did it for ear cropping and he brought the dog home to do the tat...then a myriad of other facebook and twitter posts... nobody should be letting this guy tattoo them.  Of course, apparently he has quite a few pics of people who did.  There's even one of bad permanent eyeliner.  Of course, finding the shop's address is a residential home's basement should be a warning sign.

ErinPac: I doubt any decent vet


Tattooing dogs probably doesn't fall within their hipocratic animal oath at all.

But a nice topical anesthetic and a few minutes with a needle is a lot more humane than, say, branding.

Looks like some kind of royal crest or coat of arms? I wouldn't be going to this guy for a tat.

I do not see the issue with this. My dog has a string of numbers tattooed on his belly that look like a child scribbled them on there. This would look much better, wouldn't take substantially longer to do, and would still serve as an ID. Heck, he's pretty much got the best dog ID going for the moment, until this catches on.

And it's a pit bull, so you know it was sitting in the chair gritting its teeth saying "F*ck YEAH!"
