PAMLICO COUNTY, NC – Police in North Carolina arrested a mother last month for giving her daughter a tattoo.
According to the investigators, Odessa Clay told them her 11-year-old asked for it, so she used her own tools to give her one. It was apparently a small heart near the girl’s shoulder.
Officers say Clay said to them she didn’t know it was illegal to tattoo someone under 18, even with parental permission.
She has a court date next month.
