Georgetown Tattoo Shop Owner, Brazil Silent

Last night the Jinx Proof Tattoo Parlor was full of excitement, given the scene with former council member Harold Brazil and his arrest on allegations of assault. Today, though, things were back to their regularly scheduled programming.

"We are just a tattoo shop," said owner Tim Corun, who would not comment on last night's incident when Brazil allegedly got into a fight with shop employees. Things got nasty allegedly after Brazil was told he could not follow one of the two women he was with into the area where she was going to get a tattoo.

Corun told the D.C. Wire he could not comment because it is a legal matter.

His shop has been open since 1996, he said, and known for its work, popular even among the rich and famous. There's a picture of D. L. Hughley (one of the original Kings of Comedy) getting a tattoo on the Jinx website.

Hey, what kind of owner would Corun be without a little self-promotion.

The D.C. Wire also called Brazil's law offices but were told that the former legislator was not in.

Mr. Brazil, it's not just D.C. Wire folk who want to hear your side of the story. We have it on good authority that you're at the top of the buzz chart at the John A. Wilson Building today.

Mr. Brazil has always been good for a laugh.
