Mom Tattoos 11-Year-Old Daughter

Some species eat their young. In North Carolina, they just ink them.

Last month, the Havelock Police Department arrested Odessa Clay, 30, for giving her 11-year-old daughter a small, heart-shaped tattoo on her shoulder. Clay now faces one count of tattooing a person under the age of 18 because apparently it is against the law for anyone to tattoo a minor in the state of North Carolina, even if there is parental consent.
