Neck tattoos never work. We see them all the time in the courtroom, and all the time they are worn by people on the wrong side of the bar- Defendants. This guy, Andrew Chapman has a neck tattoo that takes the cake. Perhaps the state is trying to introduce it to the jury as an admission of guilt. The court will almost certainly have to do something to cover it up: the prejudicial effect will clearly trouble the jury, regardless of the evidence in the case: he’s facing an actual murder charge. They should do something about the teardrop, too. A filled in teardrop is known to be a notch for having killed someone. Of course, it’s better than the guy that got convicted because he tattooed a murder scene on himself!

I did have a client who’s neck tattoo worked in her favor. The cop said the suspect had a tattoo that said “RED”. My client had a neck tattoo, but it very clearly said “DION”. I introduced my client’s neck into evidence, and she was found not guilty!
