Forcibly-Tattooed Teen’s Parents Sue District

CONCORD, N.H. — The parents of a teen who was assaulted and tattooed on the buttocks against his will by four classmates have filed a lawsuit against the Concord School District.

In May 2010, the teen was lured by older students to a house near Concord High School, Reuters reports. The students tattooed a picture of a penis and the words “Poop Dick” on the teen’s buttocks.
