Man Left With Permanent Boner After Penile Tattoo

Do you think I just make up these headlines? I don’t. Well actually, I “make them up” based on actual stories that only continue to surprise me. Here’s the truth, a 21 year-old man in Iran decided to get part of his girlfriend’s last name plus the words “good luck on your journeys” in his native Farsi.

Getting genital tattoos isn’t all that common to begin with but it’s much more common than what followed. A week after his ink-job, the man was left with a partial boner that would not go away. Hmm, I guess we all define the word “luck” differently.

According to doctors, this occurrence is not life-threatening because of the fact that he suffers from “non-ischemic priapism” which are just fancy schmancy doctor words for an unwanted and persisting penile erection that still allows the veins to open up and allow some blood flow.

The needle from the tattoo gun punctured holes that were abnormally deep for this process which damaged his skin, resulting in a blood pooling outside a vessel wall. Iranian specialists suggested that he have it removed but he refused and tried something else. It didn’t work, and as far as we know, he still has partial wood 24/7.

[Random fact: The name “priapism” is derived from Priapus, the Greek god of fertility]
