Outrage after disturbing footage appears to show a baby getting a ‘tattoo’ drawn on its chest

The video which was reportedly filmed in Vietnam shows the child barely struggling while a man inks a design on his tiny chest

Disturbing footage that captures the moment that a baby is held down while apparently being given a tattoo has sparked outrage online.

The video which was reportedly filmed in Vietnam shows the child barely struggling while a man inks a design on his tiny chest.

The boy is held down by a woman’s hands throughout the two-and-a-half minute video but doesn’t cry at all.

Kicking his legs and looking bewildered the boy looks on as a needle buzzes and a picture of a cartoon character emerges.

But on hundreds of angry Vietnamese Facebook users have slammed the video saying it depicts “abuse”

Chau Tran wrote: “This is disgusting, his parent need to be found and put in jail.”

Trần Ngân said that Vietnamese police should be hunting the tot’s parents.

She wrote: “The only people who could do this are are animals – they are lucky this doesn’t give any details about their address. I hope the police are informed.”

But not everyone believes the clip is real.

Nh Ng Nguyen wrote: “No way this is real – it is a needling piercing the skin, the child would be screaming.”

Another wrote: “It’s just a stencil. If this was real the baby would be crying.”
