If you have a face tattoo and you’re arrested, your mugshot will most likely surface on the Internet. And sometimes the poor decision making will have just a touch of irony.

A South Carolina man with the image of a Glock handgun equipped with a extended clipazine tattooed above his left eye was arrested for possessing a firearm despite being federally prohibited from doing so.

Greenville City police said the suspect, Michael Vines, tossed a loaded Smith & Wesson revolver into the grass after wrecking his car. Firefighters responding to the scene witnessed him tossing it and reported it to police, who recovered the gun.

Authorities charged Vines with driving under a suspended license, driving too fast for conditions and unlawfully carrying a firearm.
