hahah.. had to share a (similar) story:
a friend from a northern town in canada told me he knew of someone who got the "Maori" face tattoos done. Except one day this person met someone from that part of the world. Apparently, the guy had used the "Maori female" tattoo patterns instead. hahah. i'm sure there's a morale here somewhere.. (i *think* this is a true story.. either way, worth a sad laugh)..
