Bad Tat Sends Tattooist to Hospital

A boyfriend said he wasn't happy with his girlfriend's tattoo, police said.

A tattoo artist is in the hospital because of a bad tattoo.

The problem apparently started when the artist gave a woman some sort of tattoo that her boyfriend was not happy with.

On Wednesday afternoon, the woman’s boyfriend confronted the tattooist on Columbus Avenue and Cedar Street in New Haven.

He said the tattoo was no good and stabbed the man several times, the tattooist told police.

Then, the boyfriend hopped on a city bus and left the scene. What the tat was of and why the man was upset, police did not know.

The victim went to Yale-New Haven Hospital to be treated and police are looking for a man, around 6-feet-2-inches tall, 200 pounds.
