Not only will your tattoos be held against you in a court of law, but now even your artists are fair game!
As we previously reported, a judge allowed former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez's tattoos to be used as evidence against him in his upcoming double homicide trial. Now, it seems that the artist who tattooed the detrimental ink on the ex-tight-end will be testifying in court as well.

After hearing arguments from both the defense and prosecution as to the legal validity of having the tattoo artist testify, Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Locke finally ruled the artist's testimony as admissible. According to WPRI Eyewitness News, David Nelson, the tattoo artist who inked Hernandez in the spring of 2013 – months after the fatal shootings of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado for which Hernandez is facing trial – will be testifying about the tattoo designs the ex-Pat requested, which include a revolver with five bullets in the chamber and one missing, as well as a tattoo of the words “God Forgives" written backwards.
