Ladies, Show Us Your Tats

DECEMBER 28--In addition to snapping mug shots of arrestees, police departments are increasingly photographing the tattoos of those being booked (images of distinctive ink, of course, can be used to confirm someone's identity).

In the case of female perps, cops often photograph tattoos that are not visible to the naked eye, artwork that is on hips, breasts, inner thighs, and nether regions front and back.

As seen on these 30 pages, the photographs are revealing and sometimes racy. And they constitute our final 2007 edition of TSG's end-of-the-week mug shot roundup. (30 pages)
