Buenos Aires, Argentina (AHN) - A tattoo artist from Argentina is facing a lawsuit after drawing a penis on the back of an Argentinean football fan instead of his favorite team's official logo.

Reports said the teenager approached the tattoo artist and asked him to tattoo the logo of the Boca Junior football team on his back.

However, the tattooist was an avid supporter of the rival team and decided to play a prank on his young customer.

After reaching home, the victim proudly showed his parents his new tattoo and was surprised to learn that a penis was tattooed on his back.

According to Argentina's Terra newspaper, the victim said, "I could not see what he was tattooing because he didn't have a mirror. I only saw it when I got home and showed it to my parents."

A police spokesperson added, "The tattooist supports Boca Junior's rival, River Plate, so he got annoyed when the teenager asked him to tattoo Boca's symbol and decided to tattoo a penis instead. Unbelievable!"

This is even crazier than the story about the player that was ordered to get married by his team in order to stop his wild partying.

That's nothing. Have you seen Jackass 2? Bam gets his ass BRANDED with a penis shape, voluntarily.

Dawn: Makes you think twice about getting a tattoo someplace where you can't supervise the process.

Jason: I haven't seen Number Two, but the first one was hilarious. I think the only movie that ever made me laugh more was Anchorman.
