This tattoo artist has been accused of animal cruelty – he has actually tattooed his dog, and the Internet went mad.
The bull terrier pup has tattoos on its nose, under its eyes and on its ears.
These tattoos were allegedly created by the owner of the dog – Emerson Damasceno, a tattoo artist from Poços de Caldas, Brazil.

These awful photos were spotted by Brazilian lawyer Fernanda Soares, and were later deleted by Damasceno from social media when users completely erupted in anger.
Oddly, Damasceno claimed he tattooed his dog because it would help protect him from cancer. Yeah, I don’t exactly know how tattoos of stars, an anchor, a knuckleduster and the LA Dodgers baseball team logo is going to do that, but okay.
Damasceno’s girlfriend was on the defense, saying that the dog was tattooed after a visit to veterinary school.
However, the claim was rejected by the veterinary school, as they denied any involvement with the situation.

Photos of the dog before it was tattooed were posted on his social media accounts.
In addition to all this, a few prominent vets confirmed that the tattoos don’t have any special benefits, in fact they might even cause problems.
The meltdown by social media users caused Damasceno to delete his Facebook account and his other social media accounts.
Right now, it’s unclear if police are investigating.
