North Carolina Mom Arrested for Tattooing Her 11-year-old Daughter
Mother-daughter bonding went horribly awry for Odessa Clay when she was arrested for tattooing the outline of a heart near her daughter’s shoulder. “She asked me to do it,” Clay said.
Clay, who used her own machine, said she numbed her daughter’s arm before beginning the tattoo.
The 30-year-old mother claimed she did not know it was illegal to tattoo individuals under the age of 18.
As the girl’s parent, she believed her consent made the tattoo permissible.
