Aiken Man with Devil Horns Tattoo is Shown Hiding Them in 20th Mugshot

-

An Aiken man with devil horns tattooed on his forehead was arrested Monday for at least the 20th time since he was a youth, authorities said.

Aaron Steele, 29, was charged with public disorderly conduct and trespassing. (Full criminal background below.)

Steele got “devil horns” tattooed on his forehead sometime between 2014 and 2017, according to a progression of his mugshots. He has recently began combing his bleached hair down and covering them up.

More recently, he has been angling his forehead upward in mugshots to show off his “Never Sleep” tattoos that first appeared a year ago on his left and right eyelids. He also has an inverted cross under his left eye, a mark that is commonly used as a symbol of atheism, humanism, and the occult.

Experts say that several black metal bands use an inverted cross to call attention to their supposed devotion to Satan. Upside-down crosses also appear in horror movies such as The Omen and The Conjuring as a signal of demonic activity.

Steele is a repeat offender who has been arrested many times since he was first charged as a teenager in 2007 with disturbing schools, unlawful possession of a prescription drug and possession of drug paraphernalia.

  1. Do people ever stop and think about getting the entire story before they decide to humiliate another person. This article is mocking the gentleman it is written about. How cruel and insensitive does someone need to be. Not to mention ignorant! I want readers to know the entire story about my friend, roommate and hero Aaron Steele. This man is kind, generous, compassionate and the most loyal individual I have ever met. He has been a tenant in my home for almost a year. He has been nothing but polite and gracious! I know about his criminal history and I also know that Aaron had been struggling with extreme mental illness since he was in his teens. I will not disclose his diagnosis or form of treatment out of respect. I have witnessed Aaron’s struggle first hand and I would rather walk through fire than to live in the nightmare that is his life. All of the behavior that led to his arrests are a result of his confusion or from being misunderstood. I have spoken in detail with him about his tattoos. While they may not suit your taste, Aaron is far from a monster. He is not a threat to anybody. He protected my home when Marquise Harrison slipped inside while we were out. Harrison had a pistol and a load of laundry he was in my home without my knowledge. Aaron confronted Harrison who didnt want to comply so instead he attacked Aaron with the gun, striking him repeatedly. Aaron was able to overtake him and restrain him. I arrived home to a scene of chaos. When my 16 year old son walked into his bedroom laying on his bed was his birthday gift from Aaron Steele. Aaron is not a satanic devil worshipping criminal monster. He is a young man that is misunderstood and is in a constant battle with himself. He deserves understanding and peace of mind.
