Odessa Clay, a 30-year-old A North Carolina mother, was arrested last month after authorities determined that she gave her 11-year-old daughter a small heart-shaped tattoo near her shoulder.
Clay confirmed to WCTI that she did indeed tattoo her daughter.
Why did she do it? “She asked me to do it,” Clay said.
Clay performed the tattooing herself, using her own tools and said she numbed her daughter’s arm. She did note that she didn’t fill the heart in with color, but just did the outline.
Apparently she never considered the alternative option of just saying “No” to her child…
