Chris Blinston has been charged with “felony domestic battery by strangulation.”


Blinston’s daughter reportedly confided to her therapist Tuesday that the Florida tattoo artist choked her twice after an argument. A police report followed the claim.

Blinston reportedly held his daughter’s neck leaving her incapable of breathing for about 10 seconds, according to the police report.

She said that once he finally let go that she told him, “You just choked me, after everything that’s gone on the past two days, you’re choking me!”

Blinston reportedly became angry again and strangled her a second time leaving her unable to breathe for about 7 seconds. Blinston reportedly called the young girl a “mental skank” and threatened there “would be hell to pay” if she informed anyone about the incident.

Police said they saw bruises and marks on her neck when they interviewed Blinston’s daughter, TMZ reported. The report also stated that Blinston weighs about 100 pounds more than his daughter.

Blinston’s bail was set at $6,000 and he posted it on Friday.

Blinston reportedly owns a tattoo parlor in Coral Springs, Fla.
