A Georgia mother was recently arrested and charged with misdemeanor cruelty for allowing her 10-year-old son to get a tattoo, according to Atlanta news station WSBTV.
Chuntera Napier of Cobb County says she just couldn’t say no to her son Gaquan when he asked her if he could get a tattoo in honor of his older brother who died after being hit by a car, and she had no idea that allowing him to do so was illegal.
“It made me feel good to know that he wanted his brother on him,” Napier said, adding that her family is still grieving the death of her 12-year-old son Malik, who was hit and killed two years ago by a teenage driver in nearby Macon County.
Do you think authorities went over board in arresting her? Personally I feel there are other ways to channel grief and tattooing a small child is a bit kray!
