Mom Arrested for Allowing Son to Get Tattoo

Mom Arrested for Allowing Son to Get Tattoo

What would you do if one of your children wanted to tattoo himself in memorial to a sibling who had died?

A Georgia mom was arrested for just that  allowing her 10-year-old son to get a tattoo in honor of his brother, on his arm. The boy's 12-year-old brother died after being hit by a car two years ago.

In the state of Georgia, it is illegal for minors to receive tattoos. The flabbergasted mom was charged with "misdemeanor cruelty and being a party to a crime." She says she didn't know the act was illegal. "It’s not like he was asking me, ‘Can I get Sponge Bob?' He asked me [for] something that’s in remembrance of his brother. How can I say no?”
