A GOON in Florida with a ma­chete tat­tooed on his face used — guess what? — an ac­tual ma­chete to maim an­other man, cops say!

Justin Arthur Allen Couch, 25, was ar­rested and charged with ag­gra­vated bat­tery fol­low­ing the re­ported at­tack. Though the vic­tim — whose name was not re­leased — sur­vived, he was hos­pi­tal­ized and was un­able to use or move his left hand, ac­cord­ing to the Her­nando County Sher­iff’s Of­fice.

Po­lice say the two dudes got into an ar­gu­ment “for no rea­son” dur­ing a gath­er­ing at the vic­tim’s Brooksvill­e res­i­dence.

Then the inked-up loon “pro­duced a ma­chete and ap­proached the vic­tim in an ag­gres­sive man­ner,” and even­tu­ally struck him with the sword-like blade, cops claim.

Couch was be­ing held at the Her­nando County De­ten­tion Cen­ter on $10,000 bond.
