Mom Arrested After Letting Children Get Tattoos

( 4UMF NEWS ) Mom Arrested After Letting Children Get Tattoos:

A Texas mother of three has been arrested after letting her three young children get tattoos from her boyfriend’s sex offender brother.

Ashley Weir told her kids, all under 13 years old, “not to whine or cry” as they got ankle ink of a cross, an infinity symbol with a cross and a heart with an arrow, according to an affidavit from Lago Vista Police.

However, the siblings’ father was less than pleased with the indelible marks, and contacted police after finding his children unattended and his former partner “passed out drunk” at her home, according to the San Antonio Express-News.

Weir, 31, now faces up to three years in prison for three counts of tattoos prohibited for certain persons, a misdemeanor.

The criminal history of the artist who created the children’s ad hoc tattoos also caused concern. The 21-year-old brother of Weir’s boyfriend is on the Texas Department of Public Safety’s sex offender registry for crimes involving children.

He has been convicted of sexual conduct to a 12-year-old girl in 2013 and exposing himself to a 13-year-old girl in 2012.
