Man Tried To Steal A Waffle House Tattoo, Police Allege

Meet Max Alexander Krejckant.

The 33-year-old Floridian was arrested Saturday after he allegedly refused to pay for a $250 tattoo he received from the Ink Godz shop in St. Petersburg.

Krejckant was reportedly under the influence when he got the Waffle House logo tattooed on his right calf.

While the restaurant chain’s emblem is yellow and black, Krejckant’s tattoo--about five inches wide--was gray and black since he did not want to pay an additional $100 for yellow ink, said Ink Godz owner Neil Marcus.

When it came time to pay for the tattoo, Krejckant (seen at right) “refused all options to satisfy his debts,” cops reported. A police frisk of Krejckant turned up only “six dollars and a driver’s license in his bag and nothing on his person.”

Charged with theft, Krejckant, who lives in nearby Clearwater, bonded out of jail last night after posting $150. He has pleaded not guilty to the misdemeanor count.

In addition to his fresh Waffle House art/piece of evidence (seen below), Krejckant has several other tattoos, including a black and white tribute to Insane Clown Posse on his forearm.

Marcus said customers occasionally try to walk out without paying for tattoos, but that usually occurs during Spring Break, not the holiday season.
