A North Carolina man is under fire for tattooing his pet dog.
The Army veteran, and tattoo artist, ticked off animal lovers by inking up his 5-month old purebred AmericanPitbull in his basement tattoo parlor.
After he posted pics on his Facebook page, people from all over the world chimed in– and many have accused him of animal cruelty.
He claims it’s no different than farmers branding cows or horses.
Animal control came by and talked to him but no charges were filed.
