Tattoo Artist Inks Dog, Starts Controversy

Stream WZTV Fox 17 Newscasts LIVE starting with Fox 17 This Morning at 5am and News at 9pm.


A Brooklyn tattoo artist who goes by the name Mistah Metro has inked himself into controversy for drawing a tattoo on his dog's shoulder. 


The tattoo of a heart with the names "Alex" and "Mel" was posted on Mistah Metro's Instagram account, stating " One of the many reasons my dog is cooler than yours! She had her spleen removed today and the vet let me tattoo her while she was under. #dogs." According to a NY Post report, those are the names of the artist and his wife. 


While it's not illegal to tattoo a pet, many animal lovers are crying foul. A spokeswoman for the ASPCA told the Post "The tattooing of an animal for the selfish joy and entertainment of its owner, without any regard for the well-being of the animal, is not something the ASPCA supports. 


According to Chris Torres, the owner of the Red Legged Devil tattoo parlor where Mistah Metro works, Metro no longer works for the shop and made it clear he had no involvement. " it wasn't ME, MY shop, or MY vet...me or my shop had nothing to do with any of it."
