Homeless Man Says Stag Party Who 'Paid Him To Have Groom's Name Tattooed On Head' Should Be Jailed

A homeless guy has called for a stag party to be jailed after he claims they paid him to have the groom's name inked on his forehead.


Tomek Matuszewski, 34, said that the boozed up Brits gave him €100 (£89) to get the forehead tat of the name 'Jamie Blake' and they also paid €30 (£26) to the tattooist.

And he agreed saying 'yeah, why not?', like you do when someone tells you to get a permanent, life-long feature printed on to your noggin.

But tragically, Tomek explained that he felt like he'd won the lottery when he was handed the cash in the popular party destination of Benidorm, Spain.

He was horrified when he woke up the next morning and now he's calling for the stag member who he claims paid him to have the tattoo, and the artist, to face justice.

He told The Daily Star: "I'd like to see the culprit go to jail as well as the tattooist. I want justice and I hope karma will come back to them."

And on Friday he went to Benidorm's Foreign Tourist Attention Centre to ask police to take action.

According to the MailOnline, the tattoo was also supposed to read 'North Shields NE28', but reportedly had to be aborted because Tomek was in too much pain.

It is believed that the stag - who's name is... well, we already know - is 36 and lives in Benidorm after separating from his partner.

Yes, he was doing the thing you're supposed to do before you get married - despite splitting from his girlfriend. So he was just drowning his sorrows, maybe?

Anyway, Mr Blake has denied being in on the stunt and has even claimed that Tomek isn't homeless.

He told The Sun: "He lives with my friend and works on the strip. I got drunk and was asked to leave the bar.

"I was never in the tattoo parlour and as far as I know he was not paid any money."

But people are furious at what Tomek went through - Karen Cowles, the president of the Benidorm British Business Association, told the Sun: "What they have done to this man is utterly inhumane and akin to abuse.

"I'm appalled that a group of grown men would take advantage of someone in such a vulnerable position. They have left a human being scarred for the rest of his their life."

Now a fundraising page has been set up for Polish-born Tomek to pay for the inking to be removed.

The GoFundMe page reads: "We are raising fund to help Tomek have the tattooed removed from his face and receive medical help, he much needs."

So far €3,700 (£3,300) has been raised by over 170 people and Tomek vows to use some of the money to pay for rehab and tackle his drinking.
