A BRAZEN crook has used a glass Kahlua bottle full of paint to smash a window at a North Rockhampton tattoo parlour.

The tattoo parlour in question, RedBack Ink, was supposed to be open for business today but the damage has put business out of action until tomorrow.

The act of vandalism happened just before midnight yesterday.

CCTV footage shows a man wearing a bandana over his face before throwing the bottle at the window.

Police forensic officers were at the tattoo parlour collecting fingerprints and will continue their investigations.

This is the second time in a month the tattoo parlour has been vandalized.

But the owners say they are not letting the vandalism get them down.
