The fine art of East Texas tattoo artistry is rockin' it this week. Earlier, we brought you the story of Jonathan Thompson, the Trinity man in the Trinity jail with the tat suggesting that Trinity County constable Woody Wallace should suck his dick.

And now, let's meet Lufkin's Alfonzo Anthony, a.k.a. "Snake," a.k.a. "King Alfonzo Dewayne." According to the Lufkin Daily News, Anthony, 28, was arrested on suspicion of public intoxication after he wandered into Lufkin's Polk's Pick-It-Up convenience store and lit a cigar while inside.

The best part, even better than his nicknames?

Anthony has "The Devil" inked in big red letters across his forehead right over his coldly furious eyes.

Judging by his extensive array of mugshots in Angelina County court records, Anthony got the ink some time after July 17, 2010 (when he was arrested for assault/family violence), and August 8, 2011 (when he was picked up for trespassing).

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
