Someone who should have thought a lot more

If you ever decide to get a tattoo on your neck, perhaps you shouldn't take on a life of crime. Or, if you've decided to begin a criminal career, perhaps you shouldn't get a tattoo on your neck. Where it can be seen. And identified.
SAN ANTONIO -- A man wanted for robbing a shoe store is in jail Friday morning after police track him down by the tattoo on his neck.

Police say 28-year-old Jesus Delgado robbed the Payless Shoesource on S.W. Military near Pleasanton Road on Monday. ....

Investigators tell News 4 WOAI they were able to identify Delgado after the witnesses described a tattoo of a woman’s name on his neck.
(from WOAI-TV)

On second thought, don't get that neck tattoo at all. I'm pretty sure you'll regret it somewhere down the line.

Bonus strangeness: He robbed a Payless. WTF?! Shouldn't you be going after stores that require their customers to pay more?

ADDED: Um, how come no one mentioned his other tattoo?

Because they would still be sorting through teardrop adorned cons as we speak...

What Dave said.

Sheesh, they're lucky they had a witness who was able to read the name on his neck, 'cause "teardrop tattoo and woman's name on neck" doesn't narrow things down as much as you might think. I rode the 34 bus a few times with a totally different Mexican fellow with that particular combination of tats. (Yes, I did enlarge the pic so I could read his neck & make sure it wasn't the same guy.)

Dave, Sabra, you're probably right. There used to be a time when such a tattoo was unusual to see, but I guess not so much anymore.
