Mom, tattoo artist charged after teachers spot 12-year-old's tattoo

Mom, tattoo artist charged after teachers spot 12-year-old's tattoo”

A Georgia mom has been charged after her 12-year-old daughter was discovered to have a tattoo.

A police report, obtained by the outlet, claims authorities were called to Arnco Argent Elementary School after a teacher saw "Jesus loves" tattooed on the girl.

When police began to investigate the incident, the girl stated that her father made her get the tattoo.

A teacher discovered the tattoo when the fifth grader wore a strapless dress to a school dance last spring.

A woman named Brenda Gaddy later admitted to tattooing the girl, but says she didn't realize she was so young.

Her mother, 35-year-old Emma Nolan, told police her daughter is estranged from her father and has been for some time. Gaddy did, however, tell police the victim's mother gave permission for her to receive the tattoo.

"It's hard to imagine how as a parent you think it's appropriate to supervise or allow someone to give your child a tattoo at that age", said Fetner.

"Each of the parents had a different story and it boiled down to, frankly, just finger pointing", Lt. Jason Fetner, of the Coweta County Sheriff's Office, told WLTX. "It's hard to imagine how, as a parent, you think it's appropriate to supervise or allow someone to give your child a tattoo at that age".

Investigators said they were able to confirm that Gaddy tattooed "a number of minors" at the party, the officer said. She has also been arrested and charged with tattooing the body of someone under the age of 18, after admitting to tattooing at least two other minors at the party. The crime is a misdemeanor offense and has a maximum sentence of up to a year in jail or probation. A poll posted on Facebook by the news outlet shows that nearly three-quarters of respondents don't think there's anything wrong with a minor getting a tattoo.
