Mom Arrested After Son Gets Tattoo
Take our Patch Poll on whether parents should be allowed to have their children inked.
A 31-year-old Acworth mom was arrested by the Acworth Police Department this week on a charge of misdemeanor child cruelty after getting her 10-year-old son a tattoo.
Chuntera Napier, who lives on Bakers Grove Road, was booked into the Cobb County jail early Wednesday and released a few hours later on a $1,000 bond, jail records show.
Napier herself has a "Rest in Peace Malik" tattoo among several others, according to her jail booking report.
She told Channel 2 she didn't know it was illegal for her son to get a tattoo, and it wasn't just a gift but something he wanted to remember his brother.
It is illegal in Georgia for anyone under 18 to be tattooed except for medical reasons.
