Man Says Hospital Tattooed His Butt

Sheng Xianhui of Kunming, China went into a hospital to have gall stones removed. A week after surgery, his wife noticed a tattoo on his rear end. Sheng claims that the staff at Yunnan Stone Disease Hospital tattooed his backside with characters meaning “stone disease” while he was in surgery.
The hospital has now called police to try to evict Sheng - but he has welcomed the police involvement and asked them to investigate.

"I'm not leaving," he said. "I'm worried that if I go out for even half an hour, the hospital will claim I had the tattoo done outside.

"But even if I wanted a tattoo, I wouldn't want those characters and I wouldn't want it on that part of my body."

The hospital staff blames the marks on a possible allergic reaction. Link -via Dave Barry

Hey, if they're going to give him a tattoo, at least finish it. The character for stone is missing a horizontal stroke on top.

Also, I don't know if this is the fault of the photograph, or the actual tattoo itself, but the characters are in mirror-reverse.

Apparently para-phenylenediamine or PPD (sometimes known as Black Henna) is a dye used in textiles, perfume, hair-dye, eye-shadow and occassionally tattooing. However, some people are allergic to it and develop a rash. Also it causes an increased sensitivity to compounds containing para-phenylenediamine. Maybe it is something like that.

hmm... that would make sense that the characters would be an allergic reaction to the embossed part of the the sheets, but the writing should be backwards if that were the case. Can anyone tell the characters from the picture?
