El Paso, TX (KTSM) — An El Paso man was arrested and charged with tattooing a 16-year-old girl in his home without a license to operate a tattoo shop.
Gerardo Marmolejo, 20, was arrested Wednesday after the parents of a 16-year-old girl contacted the El Paso Sheriff's Department when they discovered that their daughter got a tattoo without their permission.
The investigation revealed that the teen had allegedly gone to Marmolejo's home and gotten a tattoo in a make shift tattoo studio. During a search warrant, tattoo paraphernalia was located inside of Marmolejo's home.
He was booked into the El Paso County Detention Center and charged with tattooing a minor. His bond was set at $7,500.
