A 12 YO was hit by a car and killed. His 10 YO brother asked Mom if he could get a tattoo with his brother's name and jersey number. Mother consented, and got one in honor of her 12 YO as well.
When someone at his school noticed the tattoo and contacted authorities, Napier was arrested on Tuesday and charged with misdemeanor cruelty and being a party to a crime, according to WSBTV. Napier bonded out of jail on Wednesday but is shocked that her consent was not enough for her son to get a tattoo.
A Georgia law from 2010 states, ?It shall be unlawful for any person to tattoo the body of any person under the age of 18, except a physician or osteopath.?
Do you think she should be charged with a crime?
Do you think it was appropriate for her to allow her son to get a tattoo in light of their loss?
