A member of a southern Austrian village's municipal council has stepped down following an uproar over his Nazi-inspired tattoo.

In a resignation letter sent to the village's mayor, dated May 30, Gerry Leitmann, 31, said he was not aware of his tattoo's "historic connections" and will have it removed immediately, according to The Associated Press.
