Pontiac, Mich. (The Weekly Vice) - Starr Burgess, a 32-year-old Michigan woman was jailed Tuesday after she allegedly tried to burn down a tattoo artist's home over a bad tattoo.
According to Oakland County police, Burgess and several friends were drinking heavily Tuesday morning when a tattoo artist agreed to provide Burgess with a tattoo.
At some point during the process, the tattoo artist passed out or fell asleep on the job, which ruined the tattoo. Burgess and her friends left the tattoo artist's residence, but returned later and demanded a refund. When the confrontation turned into an argument, Burgess left the residence stating that she was "going to blow up the house and burn this bitch down."
Burgess allegedly walked to a nearby gas station, bought fuel and used it to set the tattoo artist's house on fire. Seven people, including two children, awoke to discover that the house had been set on fire.
Witnesses heard Burgess state "I told you I was going to burn the bitch down" as she fled from the scene.
Burgess was booked into jail and charged with arson. Her bond has been set at $25,000.
