Astonishing news reaches Gutter Press from the Aydoteaux system in Everyshore, on the border with Amarr space, where an unusual tattoo has caused considerable problems for a local exotic dancer !
Unlike other tattoos that have caused problems for exotic dancers, the symbols in question do not come from the Minmatar culture, but instead, from the Amarr culture, and the religious iconography used has caused incredible difficulty for Sophie Lacroix, the dancer at the centre of the incidents.
Ms. Lacroix revealed to Gutter Press agents, that an Amarr religious tattoo that she had commissioned, featuring an all-seeing Eye, recently started talking to her, and other nearby people, causing her much consternation !
According to Ms. Lacroix, she had decided to get an Amarr-themed tattoo, on account of the numerous Amarr trading ships that frequently stop at the stations in Aydoteaux prior to crossing the border to Girini-Fa.
“I decided that a religiouslike tattoo would be pretty neat, and maybe the Amarr sailors might give better tips, so I go down to the Amarr section of the station, and there’s this tattoo shop there, so I go in, and there’s this red-skinned horned girl there, which I thought were totally sweet bodymods, and she asked what I wanted, so I said I wanted an awesome religious tattoo, maybe some scripture stuff on it, and she showed me some designs, and I picked out this one with the eye. Then about a week later, it starts talking at me, calling people sinners and stuff. I go back there, and the red girl like, literally hisses at me and says ‘no refunds!’ and that was that”
Poor customer service !
The tattoo, on Ms Lacroix’s lower back, gave its name as “Servant of Qetesh”, and asked if the Gutter Press agent wanted to convert to the “True Faith”, but declined to answer more advanced questions.
Gutter Press agents approached a number of experts in cryptodemonology for their opinion.
“Who are you and how did you get in here ?” said controversial philosopher Dr. Valate.
“Qetesh, you say ? Not a name I’m familiar with. Possibly a minor demon, you know, one of Molok’s lot”, said a more reputable theologian from Hedion University.
“Lower back tattoos are the Sign of a LUST DEMON”, opined a Khanid theologian.
While the tattoos presence does cause some concern, Ms. Lacroix has found one benefit. “My accountant says I should be able to register my tattoo as a dependent on my tax return, which will really help my financial planning.”
