A South Carolina man with a gun tattooed on his face was recently picked up for — you guessed it — unlawful possession of a firearm.

Michael Vines is federally prohibited from possessing a firearm, according to the Greenville Police Department.

"It didn’t stop Vines from allegedly tossing a fully-loaded S&W .38-caliber revolver into the grass after a recent car wreck," police wrote in a statement along with Vines' conspicuous mugshot.

Greenville firefighters told cops they witnessed the alleged act and reported it to GPD officers, who recovered a gun from the location. 

Vines has been charged with driving under a suspended license, driving too fast for conditions and unlawful carrying of a firearm.

While Vines and his tattoo were placed in a jail cell, the real weapon was placed in an evidence locker.
