Police: Father Held Down Little Boy For Stomach Gang Tattoo

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 represents the Bulldogs, Fresno's largest criminal street gang.

    See... sometimes it's not always a positive thing to have both parents in your life. You may need a father figure, but that's not always YOUR father. ..This "father" needs to have the words *irresistible idiot* tattooed on his forehead.

    That is sooo terrible, that child is now marked for life. whether he wanted one or not. Evidently he didn't if they had to hold him down...poor child,

    That is rediculous. Trying to make the child out to be gang related before he even know what a gang is...some parenting skills. He needs to take some classes on how to be a responsible, loving father instead of a street thug. Im glad the mother did what she did to try to take care of her child. Thats what mothers, and fathers for that matter, suppose to do for their kids
