British tattooist admits to court he took off customer’s …02.14.19

LONDON (Reuters) – A British tattooist pleaded guilty on Tuesday to performing illegal body modifications on clients, including taking off an ear and a nipple and splitting a customers tongue.

Brendan McCarthy, 50, who has no medical qualifications, carried out the surgical procedures at his Dr Evil studio in the central city of Wolverhampton between 2012 and 2015, prosecutors said.

His arrest followed complaints about online images of him removing a clients ear. McCarthy later said believed the procedures were lawful because his clients had consented.

At Wolverhampton Crown Court, he pleaded guilty to three counts of causing grievous bodily harm with intent and will be sentenced at a later date.

This is a landmark case involving body modification, said Rhiannon Jones of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) which presented expert evidence as to the risks to those involved.

This prosecution was not brought to seek to curtail individual choice or freedom of self-expression but because McCarthy, who was licensed to carry out tattooing and body piercing, was performing what were significant surgical procedures in a tattoo studio .., she added in a statement.

This case confirms the existing law that surgical procedures must be carried out by properly trained, qualified and regulated surgeons or health care professionals.

McCarthy was none of these and as a result his surgical procedures, albeit carried out at the request of his clients, were unlawful.

‘Dr Evil’ tattooist admits removing customer’s ear and …02.14.19

A body modification artist has admitted causing grievous bodily harm to three customers by carrying out a tongue-splitting procedure and removing an ear and a nipple.

Brendan McCarthy, from Bushbury, Wolverhampton, pleaded guilty to three counts of causing grievous bodily harm with intent relating to procedures carried out at his tattoo parlour ‘Dr Evil’s Body Modification Emporium’ in Wolverhampton between 2012 and 2015.

The 50-year-old tattooist, who was charged in 2017 while working under the name Dr Evil, had previously denied the charges, claiming consent given by his clients provided him with a lawful defence.

McCarthy entered his guilty pleas at Wolverhampton Crown Court on Tuesday and was bailed to appear for sentencing on March 21.

He admitted splitting a tongue with a scalpel in July 2012, removing a nipple in August 2012 and removing an ear in July 2015 without using anaesthetic.

The ear belonged to 43-year-old customer Ezechiel Lott – the other victims have not been named.

McCarthy originally faced six charges but he has pleaded guilty to three today.

A previous hearing heard how McCarthy was arrested in December 2015 after concerns were raised over his lack of medical qualifications, the unsuitability of his salon and unregulated actions.

The case has previously been referred to as a test case – and Judge Amjad Nawaz said it “would not be an easy sentencing exercise.”

Jonas Hankin QC, prosecuting, said: Your honour is familiar with the history of the case – all avenues of appeal having been exhausted.

Andrew Smith QC, defending, added: “It’s my application that sentencing be adjourned for the preparation of a pre-sentence report.

“It’s going to be my submission ultimately that the particular facts may allow the court to depart from the sentencing guidelines.”

The public gallery at today’s hearing was packed full of McCarthys relatives and supporters.

Speaking outside court, he said: “I’m going to try and put this out of my mind and try and get some normality back.

His bail conditions include not carrying out any procedures that involve the removal of body parts.

Extraordinary love story of the tattooist of Auschwitz …01.26.19

The incredible story of how the tattooist of Auschwitz found love in the concentration camp has been told in a heart-wrenching new book.

Lale Sokolov, born Ludwig Lale Eisenberg to Jewish parents in Slovakia in 1916, was admitted to Auschwitz concentration camp in 1942.

He offered himself to the Nazis to spare the rest of his family, without knowing the horrors that lay within the soul-destroying death camp.

Lale, now identified as prisoner number 32407, was forced to work in construction in the camp before contracting typhoid.

A French academic called Pepan took care of Lale while he was ill. Pepan, who had given Lale his numerical prisoner tattoo, made Lale his assistant and showed him the ropes with the tattoo supplies.

When Pepan disappeared one day, Lale was made the predominant tattooist of Auschwitz.

While Lale was still a prisoner of Auschwitz, being the chief tattooist afforded him privileges such as extra rations and a single room.

However, he knew that he was lucky every day just to be alive.

He did what he did to survive,” Heather Morris, author of The Tattooist of Auschwitz, told the BBC.

He said you took whatever was being offered. You took it and you were grateful because it meant that you might wake up the next morning.

Of all the people that Lale was forced to tattoo, one made a remarkable impression on the tenacious man.

In July 1942, Lale was presented with the arm of a young girl, now to be known as prisoner number 34902.

Decades later as he recollected his first encounter with his one true love, Lale told Morris that as he tattooed her number on her left arm, she tattooed her number in his heart.

The girl in question was Gita Fuhrmannova, an inmate of the Birkenau womens camp.

Lale enlisted the help of an SS guard to smuggle letters to Gita and was even able to sneak extra rations to her and her friends.

Lale used his advantageous position as chief tattooist to help as many people as he could.

He was able to trade goods with local villagers so that he could afford more rations for those in need.

When the Nazis began shipping prisoners out of Auschwitz in 1945, Gita disappeared without a trace.

However, Lale never lost hope of reuniting with his long lost love.

After being liberated from Auschwitz and returning to his family home, Lale made his way to Bratislava, a common place for concentration camp survivors to pass through on their way back to Czechoslovakia.

He was advised to try going to the Red Cross instead. However, he didnt make it the whole way there.

While en route, lo and behold a familiar young woman stepped in front of his horse in the middle of the street.

Lale and Gita had found each other again at last and married in October 1945.

After being imprisoned by the government for sending financial support for an Israeli state, the Sokolovs eventually made their way to Melbourne. The couple had a son, Gary, in 1961.

The origins of their love story remained a secret that only a few friends were aware of up until Gitas death in 2003.

Lale passed away three years later in 2006, with the knowledge that people all over the world would finally learn of the extraordinary story of his and his wife’s enduring love.

The Secret Story of the Auschwitz Tattooist | Ancient Code01.24.19

In 1942, a man called Lale Sokolov arrived in Auschwitz-Birkenau.

He was given the job of tattooing the prisoners the Nazi had marked for survival. His job was simple, yet unforgettable: scratching numbers into his fellow victims arms in indelible ink to create what would later become recognized as one of the most potent and terrifying symbols of the Holocaust.

As the Tetovier (tattooist), it meant he was a step further away from death than the other prisoners. Lale received a number of benefits such as a single room, extra rations, and free time when his work had been completed.

For the survivors, the numbers they wore printed on their skin were an indelible reminder of the horrors they had lived in the Nazi concentration camps. But for a man called Lale Sokolov, dubbed the Auschwitz tattooist, one mark changed his life forever.

Waiting in line to be tattooed, scared,afraid, shaking, was a young girl: Gita.

For Laleit was love at first sight.

Soon, he was determined not only to survive himself but to ensure that the girl he had fallen in love with instantly, Gita, did so too.

This is how one of the most life-affirming, courageous, unforgettable and human stories of the Holocaust begins: the love story of the tattooist of Auschwitz, written by Heather Morris, who worked for 3 years with the protagonist to rebuild their past. The incredible story of survival and romance born in the midst of the horror of the Holocaust was revealed in the book The tattooist of Auschwitz.

Its a story of love and hope in the middle of terror.

Lale Sokolov tattooed the arm of Gita Fuhrmannova in 1942while tattooing an all-female group of new arrivals.

I tattooed a number on her arm. She tattooed her name on my heart.

Shortly after having tattooed the number 34902 on her body, and thanks to the help of a guard Lale and Gita began exchanging letters.He had used his relatively privileged position to keep her alive by sending her extra food and messages through his personal guard, and having her moved to a better workstation.

Lale, a diminutive of Ludwighis real namearrived in Auschwitz at the age of 26.

He was born in Slovakia and was of a Jewish family. In the countryside, he learned the trade of a Frenchman named Pepan, and thanks to his knowledge of different languages, he was chosen by the Nazis as the successor of the old tattoo artist.

Between 1941 and 1943 he marked all the prisoners that were selected for survival, and thanks to this new position, he managed to escape death.

In 1945, Gita was able to leave the camp before the arrival of the Russians. Shortly after, Sokolov did the same.

That same year they were reunited and eventually got married.

After a while, they settled in Australia, where they had a son in 1961.

For years, Sokolov kept the secret of his past for fear of being seen as a collaborator of the Nazis.

It was only after his wifes death that he was encouraged to tell his whole story.

The book has been described as extraordinary moving, confronting and uplifting.

Lale Sokolovdied in 2006 and is survived by his son.

Amazon.com: The Tattooist: Jason Behr, David Fane, Robbie …09.27.18

I liked the premise of the story with the Tatt’s possessing a spirit that is killing the people receiving the tattoos from the lead (Jason Behr) character. The writing and execution of this story is what gets this slow moving and short on thrills movie in trouble. Behr’s character is less than believable as a tattoo artist for many reasons. Here is a few of the more obvious ones, He never uses a transfer to do his work? He puts his own design on the girls belly without consulting her on the design? He didn’t use vaseline and or bandage his work on most of his clients? We are never told why he is the “so called healer tattooist”

While I liked the Samoan influence on the story for the disgraced spirit entity the story only touched the surface on the culture and the western comtamination of their culture and their struggle to return to the ways of old. I just was not taken in by this story nor was I by Behr’s character or his actions. I only cared for the Samoan girl that he hooks up with. While I wasn’t surprised by their hooking up even thought what her cousin said about her and her religion and her dating a white guy. They (the writer) tried to make this a Romeo and Juliet kind of thing that you could see coming a mile away. The spirits characters story seemed a little rushed at the end of the movie to bring it all together in a neat little package.

There was not much of any kind of scary element to this movie nor was it evenly paced and my attention waned on a few occasions.

The movie has a fair amount of cursing with a couple of sex w/nudity scenes and some violence, but nothing is over the top. The acting ranges from so…so to good with the direction falling in the good category. As I have mentioned before the writing and execution is the bad guy that took a cool premise and made it into a so…so story. Would I watch this again? NO. Was it a waste of time to watch? Almost. 2 stars

The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris

The #1 International Bestseller & New York Times Bestseller

This beautiful, illuminating tale of hope and courage is based on interviews that were conducted with Holocaust survivor and Auschwitz-Birkenau tattooist Ludwig (Lale) Sokolovan unforgettable love story in the midst of atrocity.

The Tattooist of Auschwitz is an extraordinary document, a story about the extremes of human behavior existing side by side: calculated brutality alongside impulsive and selfless acts of love. I find it hard to imagine anyone who would not be drawn in, confronted and moved. I would recommend it unreservedly to anyone, whether theyd read a hundred Holocaust stories or none.Graeme Simsion, internationally-bestselling author of The Rosie Project

In April 1942, Lale Sokolov, a Slovakian Jew, is forcibly transported to the concentration camps at Auschwitz-Birkenau. When his captors discover that he speaks several languages, he is put to work as a Ttowierer (the German word for tattooist), tasked with permanently marking his fellow prisoners.

Imprisoned for over two and a half years, Lale witnesses horrific atrocities and barbarismbut also incredible acts of bravery and compassion. Risking his own life, he uses his privileged position to exchange jewels and money from murdered Jews for food to keep his fellow prisoners alive.

One day in July 1942, Lale, prisoner 32407, comforts a trembling young woman waiting in line to have the number 34902 tattooed onto her arm. Her name is Gita, and in that first encounter, Lale vows to somehow survive the camp and marry her.

A vivid, harrowing, and ultimately hopeful re-creation of Lale Sokolov’s experiences as the man who tattooed the arms of thousands of prisoners with what would become one of the most potent symbols of the Holocaust, The Tattooist of Auschwitz is also a testament to the endurance of love and humanity under the darkest possible conditions.

Like the Nobel Prize-winning author Elie Wiesels Night, Morris work takes us inside the day-to-day workings of the most notorious German death camp. Over the course of three years, Morris interviewed Lale, teasing out his memories and weaving them into her heart-rending narrative of a Jew whose unlikely forced occupation as a tattooist put him in a position to act with kindness and humanity in a place where both were nearly extinct. (BookPage)

The Tattooist of Auschwitz is the story of hope and survival against incredible odds and the power of love. (Popsugar)

The Tattooist of Auschwitz is an extraordinary document.. I find it hard to imagine anyone who would not be drawn in, confronted and moved. I would recommend it unreservedly to anyone, whether theyd read a hundred Holocaust stories or none. (Graeme Simsion, internationally-bestselling author of The Rosie Project)

What an extraordinary and important book this is. We need as many memories of the Holocaust as we can retain, and this is a moving and ultimately uplifting story of love, loyalties and friendship amidst the horrors of war. (International bestseller Jill Mansell)

As many interviews as I did with Holocaust survivors for the Shoah Foundation and as many devastating testimonies as I heard, I could not stop reading THE TATTOOIST OF AUSCHWITZan extraordinary story of love so fierce it sustained people enduring the unimaginable. Read it, share it, remember it. (Jenna Blum, NYT and international bestselling author of Those Who Save Us and The Lost Family)

To many, this book will be most appreciated for its powerful evocation of the everyday horrors of life as a prisoner in a concentration camp, while others will be heartened by the novels message of how true love can transcend even the most hellishly inhuman environments. This is a perfect novel for book clubs and readers of historical fiction. (Publishers Weekly)

..this is a powerful, gut-wrenching tale that is hard to shake off. (Kirkus Reviews)

Although one might suspect that theres far more to his past than is revealed here, much of Lales storys complexity makes it onto the page. And even though its clear that Lale will survive, Morris imbues the novel with remarkable suspense. (Booklist)
