WESTERLY, R. I. – Rhode Island police have charged a 15-year-old high school girl say she gave homemade tattoos two friends at school.
The Westerly Sun reports that the West High student gave the two girls, aged 15 and 16, tattoos with a needle bound to a frozen-pop-stick Friday. An employee saw the tattoos and the height of a school resource officer.
The police Capt. Shawn Lacey says the resource officer had to withstand, because it’s against the law to tattoo a minor. Lacey says the girls were cooperative when questioned.
Officials say that a tattoo is a sun and moon combination; the other was a semicolon linked to a faith-based non-profit organization that supports people with suicidal thoughts.
The girls’ parents were informed and referred the case to the family court.
