Penis tattoo case now GBH

CHARGES against a man accused of tattooing a lewd image on an Ipswich man's back have been upgraded.

Matthew Francis Brady, 21, appeared in Ipswich Magistrates Court on Monday accused of tattooing a 40cm-long image of a penis and a crude slogan on a mate's back.

Brady had allegedly talked the 25-year-old man into getting a Yin and Yang symbol with some dragons but the end result was far from what the man wanted.

Police dropped a charge of assault occasioning bodily harm yesterday and replaced it with a charge of grievous bodily harm.

Brady also faces charges of assault occasioning bodily harm, a charge under the Public Safety Act, evading fare, drink driving, and driving an unregistered, uninsured vehicle while his licence was disqualified.
