White Trash Wednesday

Wanna get a tat, but you're too lazy to get off the couch and schlep on down to the parlor? Never fear - if you're in Springfield, Missouri, we'll come to you!

Some women in Springfield are regretting their decision last week to get a tattoo from a door-to-door tattoo salesman. At least one person had to be hospitalized and the others face serious health risks.

Friday night, a man knocked on doors holding a tattoo gun and offering his services.

Featuring state-of-the-art penitentiary-grade equipment:

Tamra Eason described the tool as homemade, but still agreed to pay for a tattoo. So did two other women in her apartment complex.

"It was wrapped with black tape, had a pin underneath it, had fishing wire going through it, you could tell it was a homemade gun," Eason said.

And just look at this handiwork!

And check out these satisfied customers!

Of course, we're not responsible for any side effects:

The next day, Linda Falls passed out and had to be hospitalized.

"I passed out in the store and they said I should have it checked out," Falls said.

All the women have an infection in the tattoo area and have been told to get tested for HIV and hepatitis.

It's White Trash Wednesday! Take the whole tour:
