Reasonable bail should be set in most criminal cases. This person needs to help of an experienced criminal defense attorney. The fact that this person has tattoos vs. no tattoos is an issue for a jury trial, not necessarily for bail purposes. His attorney can file a motion to set bail or reduce bail. Start with an attorney and move on from there.

The above information does not establish an attorney client relationship nor is it meant to provide legal advice.

Your friend can be held without bond until his trial is held. He should hire a lawyer, or ask for court appointed counsel, to file a bond motion in hopes of having a bond set. In Virginia, for certain crimes of violence or if the crime involved a weapon, there is a presumption against bond.
