Posted in Tattoo Removal on Jun 19, 2017

A Brazilian teenager was tortured after trying to steal a bicycle in So Bernardo do Campo, acity near So Paulo. Tattoo artist Maycon Wesley Carvalho dos Reis, 27, caught the teen and decided to take justice into his own hands. He tattooed Im a thief and a loser on the young mans forehead.

A friend of Reis, Ronildo Moreira de Araujo, 29, filmed the session and published the video on social media.

Police arrested Reis and Araujo on Saturday. Both men confessed to the crime and were charged with torture, a crime that does not allow release on bail. Their intention, according to them, was to teach the teenager a lesson.

The young mans name was not disclosed since he is a minor. In fact, Brazilian law forbids media outlets from identifying underage victims. However, his family has talked to aTV station.Vando Rocha, 33, the boys uncle, said that as soon as he saw the video, he started to cry. My heart could not take it, Rocha declared.

According to Record TV, the teenager has a history of drug abuse. He has been in rehab three times and had run away from home. After the incident, he moved back in with his uncle and grandmother.The tattoo can be removed, but the scars will remain in my mind, the boy said.

Collective Afroguerrilha created a crowdfunding campaign to help pay for the tattoo removal, legal counseling, and rehab for the boy. The initial goal was to raise 15,000 BRL ($4,500) but the campaign has managed to double the amount: 32,000 BRL ($9,600). Afroguerrilha editor Robin Batista wrote on his Facebook page: Ive known this kid since he was little and his family lives in poverty and deprivation.

This is not the first time Brazilian citizens try to take justice into their own hands. In 2014, three man detained and tied a teenage boy to a post in Rio de Janeiro. They suspected he was robbing pedestrians in a rich neighborhood. He was also beaten up. The men called themselvesThe Vigilantes.
