Associated Press: Police in California are looking for a man accused of holding down his 7-year-old son while another man tattooed the child's belly with a street gang sign.

The boy's mother reported it to Fresno authorities on Tuesday.

Police say the father, 26-year-old Enrique Gonzalez, faces six charges including mayhem, child abuse, false imprisonment, battery, participating in a criminal street gang and committing a crime for the benefit of a gang.

Police have arrested a man they say was the tattoo artist. He faces similar charges.

The dog paw insignia tattooed on the boy represents the Bulldogs, Fresno's largest criminal street gang.

Disgusting! Both of these men should be sent to prison for life because that is the sentence they have given this child. Even if the tattoo is removed the child will have to suffer through the painful laser treatment and may wind up with scars… not to mention the emotional scars he is left with.

Yet another reason why people should have to pass a test to have children! I hope this man rots in hell!

This man should never be allowed near his child again, or any other kids! He clearly has no concern about their welfare! Poor kid… that is not a memory that will fade not to mention the reminder imprinted on the poor kiddo’s skin. So sad. How on earth can some people justify the horrible things done to their children? It’s sickening.

So why is tattooing a boy disgusting, but cutting off his foreskin is perfectly OK?
