SALISBURY, N.C. — A Rowan County man is accused of tattooing his 15-year-old stepdaughter.

WBTV reported that Bobby Carrol King, 51, of Kannapolis, was charged on Tuesday with putting a tattoo on an underage person.

The suspect allegedly created a tattoo on the girl’s right hip that reads, “May Death Never Stop You.” The legal age for getting a tattoo in North Carolina is 18.

The suspect is accused of owning a tattoo gun. Officials said the suspect, the stepdaughter and the stepdaughter’s mother were uncooperative during the initial interview, according to the Salisbury Post.

This is the second time such an incident has happened recently in Rowan County.

Back in June, 29-year-old Anna Marie Yates was charged with tattooing her 12-year-old daughter.

    Seriously?! There is absolutely no other crimes going on that we have to worry about a teenager having a tattoo just because she is under 18?! How the hell do they know she didnt get it somewhere else where it is legal for a minor to get a tattoo with parental consent?? Is that now illegal in this god forsaken state that is so far back in the times it will never catch up
