Tokyo man arrested for forcibly tattooing his initials into the butt of a maid cafe employee

Naohiro Kobayashi, a 43-year-old resident of Taito Ward in Tokyo, was taken into police custody after allegations surfaced of him forcibly tattooing his initial “N” into the butt of a 19-year-old maid cafe employee in five different places.

According to police, Kobayashi worked as an investor and was part of the management of the maid cafe the victim worked at. This ostensibly makes him her boss, adding another layer of horror to her abuse.

The crime occurred two months ago in November, when Kobayashi brought the woman back to his apartment and made her drink juice that was laced with 90-percent alcohol. After she fell unconscious, he tattooed his initial “N” into the skin of her butt five times using a safety pin and black magic-ink.

Kobayashi has confessed to the crime, saying: “I wanted to show that she was my woman. To confirm our love.”

A neighbor of Kobayashi’s claimed that he often brought women back to his home, always in their teens or early 20s. Police are currently investigating to see if any other similar tattooing cases have occurred.
