A teenage ‘thief’ has been subjected to a lifetime humiliation after a Tattoo Artist caught him and inked his forehead with ‘I am a thief’.
According to reports, the artist, Maycon Wesley from Brazil, caught up with the thief – who had allegedly stolen a bicycle from a man with just one leg – sat him on a chair and scribbled the damning words on his forehead.
The full words, written in Portuguese are:
‘Eu sou ladrão e vacilão, which translates to ‘I am a thief and a loser’.
He recorded the damning punishment and he cheekily asked if the embarrassed teenager liked it.
DailyMail reports that the young boy’s family saw the video of the inking which has been widely circulated online and reported the artists to the police.
Police has since arrested Wesley and his friend, Ronildo Moreira de Araujo – whose voice can be heard in the video – on Saturday and charged them with torture.
Local reports say that the boy went missing after the incident, which happened on Friday.
Wesley and Araujo claim that they released the boy, adding they they do not know his whereabouts.
