Man Charged with Illegal Tattooing

Updated 1 year ago

SCARBOROUGH, Maine (AP) – A man living in a Scarborough motel is facing charges for allegedly tattooing two 14-year-old girls. Joshua Grant was charged Thursday after police executed a search warrant at The Downeaster Motel. All tattoo artists in Maine must be licensed by the state, and it is illegal to tattoo anyone younger than 18. Police say the 35-year-old Grant did not have a license. He’s charged with tattooing a minor, tattooing without a license, endangering the welfare of a child, unlawful sexual contact and assault. He was not arrested because the charges are misdemeanors. Police learned of the tattoos after being notified by a school guidance counselor in the town where the girls live. That town was not disclosed.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.
