From the New York Daily News:
A Kansas man charged with first-degree murder is afraid the tattooed mirror-image letters spelling out the word "murder" across his neck might prejudice a jury, so he is asking for a professional tattoo artist to remove or cover it up.
Prosecutors say they aren't opposed to Jeffrey Chapman covering his tattoo, but Barton County's sheriff says he's against transporting Chapman to a licensed tattoo facility — the only places tattoo artists are allowed to practice under Kansas law.
Michael Smith of Maine just wanted to warn some local contractors to get off his property on a Tuesday morning. But after the workers mistook his gun tattoo for the real deal the police were at his house with armed backup in the driveway. Another friendly reminder to think about your tattoo choices, folks.
