Police Investigating Video of 10-Year-Old Getting Tattoo
The mother of the 10-year-old who received a tattoo from a 16-year-old artist in Logan County has been charged with a single count of child endangering in connection to the case, according to court records.
A 16-year-old tattoo artist also is facing two misdemeanor counts accusing him of delinquency stemming from the investigation into a Facebook video which allegedly showed him giving a 10-year-old boy a permanent tattoo, went viral and caught the attention of police.
One count of the delinquency charge against the 16-year-old artist involves the sterilization of equipment. The other count accuses him of violating safety and sanitation standards, according to court record.
The artist, who according to the court documents lives in the village of Lakeview, was being detained in the juvenile detention center on an unrelated offense, Logan County Prosecutor Eric Stewart said.
