When a man was taken to hospital with a head injury after an alleged altercation at a nightclub in Brisbane, Queensland, he was later found to have a tattoo on his left forearm that appeared to be a tiger.
The tattoo is part of a tradition in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu, where people say tigers are the symbol of the tiger goddess, and that the word tiger is derived from the word ‘tan’.
However, police are investigating the tattoo’s origins.
“The tattoo on the left forearm of the victim is not the tiger.
It is not a tiger’s paw, but a tiger tattoo,” Inspector Samuels said.”
This is a common tattoo in Tamil Nadu.
There are many other tattoos around the world that show that it is a symbol of a tiger.”
Police say the tattoo on Mr Kumar’s forearm is from the Tamil Nadu state of Rajasthan, but have not yet determined the origins of the tattoo.
Mr Kumar has been released from hospital and is expected to be discharged from hospital on Friday.
An investigation into the incident is ongoing, Inspector Samus told news.com.au.
Police said the man had been involved in an altercation at the club around 10:30pm on Monday night, and the incident had escalated.
A woman and her son were taken to a hospital after being involved in a scuffle.
No arrests have been made in relation to the incident, Inspector Samuel said.
Tamil Nadu police chief Uma Kumari said police were investigating whether the man was injured as a result of a fight.
She said police had received information from the public that the man in question had received a tattoo tattoo from the tiger deity.
“It’s a tattoo.
A tiger tattoo.
That’s all we know about it,” she said.
“It is the first time we’ve heard of it.”
Mr Kumari has said he would investigate the incident.
Earlier, the man, who did not want to be named, told news in a Facebook post that he had received the tattoo as a reward for helping his brother who was in hospital.
He added that he would be leaving the country for “at least a few days” and would be “recovering” quickly.
On Wednesday night, Mr Kumar told the ABC he would return to India and return to work, adding he had no plans to give the tattoo back.
“If I give it back, I will return to Australia, that’s the main thing,” he said.
