Has anyone been in a situation where one juvenile (16) tattoos another juvenile (14)? What is the offense? Health and Safety Code refer to tatooist performing the act. Any suggestions?
Check out chapter 146 of the Health & Safety Code. It is a Class A misdemeanor to perform tattoos without a license, etc.
The year before last I had a juvenile with a brand new gang tattoo. I prosecuted him for drugs and told the mom (and the probation officer) that he needed to get the tattoo removed. The only tattoo violations that I know of are Health and Safety Code Sections 146.012 (conditions under which a minor can get a tattoo), 146.002, (license requirements to produce tattoos) and 146.018 (makes a violation of either of the above a Class A Misdemeanor and therefore delinquent conduct). You should be able to prosecute both of the juveniles with these sections.
