All that takes is finding a nazi tattoo artist. I don't imagine those are particularly rare.

An extreme paedophile tattoo artist? Not so sure.

He probably doesn't know who he is, and even if he did, tattoo artists aren't held responsible for any message or meaning behind the tattoos. The person getting tattooed signs a waiver stating as such. Same goes for anything that's racist or directing hate towards a certain group of people. Plus, that tattoo looks like it required a lot of time to do, and since most tattoo parlors charge by the hour, they probably made a pretty penny out of it, aren't being held responsible, and likely chose not to include it in their portfolio of work done, so no one will know who did it unless that person who gets tattooed tells others, in which case the artist or tattoo shop will say they had no idea who the dude was or the meaning behind "mega lolz", since a lot of artists don't care to ask about the meaning behind the tattoos they're putting on.

Oh yeah, it's not a responsibility thing at all. And for the benefit of the doubt, got to assume they just didn't appreciate the significance. What I'm saying is, if they knew, and still didn't, they're as bad as the guy getting the tattoo within the same context.

Maybe, but for all we know if the tattoo artist is aware of who Watkins is there's always the possibility the artist said he disagreed with the reasoning behind getting Watkins's face tattooed on him.

Also, do we know this is necessarily a fan supporting Watkins? It could be some sort of jab against Watkins for being an idiot with that quote, and sporting the face of a man who did absolutely terrible things. For example, at clothing stores in a lot of malls around here there are shirts with Rob Ford smiling with the quote "I have more than enough to eat at home" (referring to his comments regarding denying sexual harrasment of a co-worker), which I'm sure is very much an anti-Ford shirt. This could be the same thing, with a "Mega lolz" being pointed towards Watkins himself for the terrible things he did and going to prison, especially since the picture chosen is a mug shot, not one of him singing or doing a promo photo. Though likely not the best way to do so as it could be misinterpreted.

I'm not saying that's likely, but there is that possibility.

Tattoo artists don't ask questions. It's your body. It's just a job to them. Even if the artist knew very well who it was if the client asked for it and paid his deposit the artist would just do it.

But no matter why whoever did it chose to do it, be it to be ironic, some sick tribute or on a dare, it's the stupidest thing I've seen in my life.

I completely disagree. If the tattoo artist did in fact know the significance of this tattoo, he's sort of doing the world a favour by permanently branding the stupid fuck who wanted to have it done. The options were either:

>there is a sick fuck out there who really wants this tattoo so I might as well make it obvious to others
OR
>there is a sick fuck out there who really wants this tattoo but I won't do it and so no one will know what this guy is like unless he discloses it

People talk a lot of shit on stupid tattoos (I definitely judge them harshly), but I think they're ultimately a good thing. Extremely reliable, near-permanent indicators of someone's mental fortitude. E.g. If tattoos never existed, it would be much harder to separate the kind of woman inclined towards getting a tramp stamp from the ones quality enough to not get one.

This. I mean, there's a guy out there who has porn site logos all over his face, and there's a guy who got 'Leave Rebecca Black alone' tattoo'd on his arm. Tattoo artists don't choose tattoos for their clients unless the client asks them to, and they only stop a client from getting a tattoo if the ink required wouldn't come out in their skin, allergy to some of the ink being used or the client is clearly not in a clear mental state to make the decision like being drunk or high. After that, it's money in the pocket for the artist.

When you think it's hit a low... A new low happens:

The ongoing probe surrounding convicted pedophile/former Lostprophets frontman Ian Watkins has taken an unexpected turn. A former escort known to have had relations with Watkins named Joanne Mjadzelics (aka Joanna Majic) was quite vocal regarding the depravity Watkins was engaged in.
To that end Mjadzelics gave numerous interviews to the tabloids and press during Watkins‘ court proceedings condemning his behavior; while also stating that her many warnings to the police of his behavior went unanswered. Walesonline.co.uk are now reporting that the 38 year old Mjadzelics herself has been charged with possessing and distributing indecent images of children.
She has been charged with four counts of possession of an indecent image of a child (level 4), two counts of distributing an indecent image of a child (level 1) and one count of encouraging or assisting the commission of an offence of distributing an indecent image of a child.
Senior Crown Prosecutor Suzanne Thomas for the Crown Prosecution Service Wales stated of the charges:

“As part of a wider police investigation, the Crown Prosecution Service was asked by South Wales Police to review evidence files relating to alleged offences committed by Joanne Mjadzelics.
I have reviewed this evidence in accordance with the Code for Crown Prosecutors and concluded that there is sufficient evidence and it is in the public interest to charge Joanne Mjadzelics with four counts of possession of an indecent image, two counts of distributing an indecent image and one count of encouraging another to distribute an indecent image.
Accordingly, I have authorised South Wales Police to charge Ms Mjadzelics with these offences and she has been bailed to appear before Cardiff Magistrates’ Court on 21 March.
May I remind all concerned that Joanne Mjadzelics has a right to a fair trial. It is very important that there should be no reporting, commentary or sharing of information online which could in any way prejudice these proceedings. For these reasons, it would be inappropriate for me to comment further.”
