Perhaps with the a view to impressing the Persian Goddess of good luck as also his girlfriend, a 21-year old Iranian thought it would be a great idea to have his ‘little gentleman’ – penis tattooed with ‘borow be salaamat’ (good luck on your journeys in Persian), and the first initial of his girlfriend’s last name -“M.”
Unfortunately for the young lad, his sense of bravado turned tragic leaving him with a permanent semi-erection possibly for life. Medically speaking, how could merely getting a penis tattooed make it go haywire? Why could this disaster have happened? According to some Iranian urologists quoted in recent ‘Journal of Sexual Medicine’ it is largely due to the traditional techniques being employed for tattooing.
