The proper way to do it is to change the permission
settings back to the way they were, and add your
username to group uucp. Doing it that way allows
the system to be used by different users.

That should be :
crw-rw---- 1 root uucp 188,...
As you can see group uucp has read/write permission.
Anytime you need access to a device that has group
read/write, add your username to that group rather
than mess with the permissions.
