A person who tried to conceal their identity from police had one small problem - their name tattooed on their arm.

The hilarious incident was revealed by Geraldton police in a tweet today.

It read: "Lying to police about who you are ... don't have your full name and birthday tattooed on your arm! #doh #fail #fb"

Police could not resist adding a Simpsons cartoon to the tweet, showing Bart writing "Insert brain here" on the back of Homer's head.
