A 14-year-old New Hampshire boy was tattooed against his will by a group of fellow high school students who told the victim that they would no longer pick on him if he agreed to the inking. According to an arrest warrant affidavit, on May 10 the teenager was enticed to a Concord home, where the words "Poop Dick" and a drawing of a penis were tattooed across his buttocks. The boy told investigators that one of his assailants warned that "he was going to get the tattoo whether he liked it or not."

For example, under California law,
"... a parent has the right to reasonably discipline a child by physical punishment and may administer reasonable punishment without being liable for battery. In order to be considered disciplinary the punishment must:"
Be necessary (i.e. there it must be in response to a child's negative behavior).
Be reasonable, not excessive, in the judgment of a third party -- e.g. a Child Protective Services representative, or a law enforcement officer. 1
