Mother Arrested For Allowing Ten-Year Old Son To Get Tattoo [VIDEO]


A Georgia woman was arrested after school employees notified authorities that she allowed her 10-year old son to get a tattoo in memory of a deceased family member.

Chuntera Napier probably thought she was doing the right thing when she said yes to her son Gaquan’s request to  get a tattoo –the authorities and her son’s school did not see it that way. Gaquan’s 12-year old brother Malik  died two years ago after being hit by a car and as his mother explained to WSBTV, this wasn’t just a normal tattoo:

“My son came to me and said, ‘Mom, I want to get a tattoo with Malik on it, rest in peace.’ It made me feel good to know that he wanted his brother on him. What do I say to a child who wants to remember his brother? It’s not like he was asking me, ‘Can I get Sponge Bob? He asked me [for] something that’s in remembrance of his brother. How can I say no?”

And she didn’t. Chuntera allowed her son to get his brothers name and basketball number on his right arm, which his school noticed and notified the authorities.The police arrested her on Tuesday on the charges of misdemeanor cruelty and being a party to a crime.

Napier says that she thought it was okay for her son to get a tattoo as long as she gave her consent, however, the law Georgia enacted in 2010 says no one can get a tattoo under the age of 18 unless ordered by a physician or osteopath.
