A Texas mother has been arrested after she allowed a known sex offender to tattoo her three children.
Thirty-one-year-old, Ashley Nicole Weir faces charges including three counts of tattoos prohibited for certain persons. Police said her ex-husband notified law enforcement that she allowed their three young children to get tattoos.
Authorities said that Weir allowed her unlicensed brother’s boyfriend, Dakota Popham to tattoo the ankles of her small children, all under the age of thirteen. Popham is also a registered sex offender.
Under Texas law, it is illegal to tattoo children under the age of eighteen.
