LOL well i won't defend her intelligence :) Minor offense or not, the principle of the charges do seem kind of silly to me.
You would think that someone who works as a tattoo artist would know that it's illegal to tattoo a minor in her state. She could have driven her daughter over the state line to Virginia and it would have been perfectly legal, but she chose to do it illegally at home instead. And now she's paying the price, literally. It's only a misdemeanor, she was cited & released, and probably only faces a court date because she didn't pay the fine.
