KIDDIE TATTOO ARREST Albany man arrested after mother’s complaint

Albany resident Jarvis Jamal Anderson charged two underage customers he met through Facebook just $50 for three tattoos – just $16.67 each — they received last month.

But there was one problem with the deal: The customers were under-age and their mothers found out.
Albany police reports say that the two 17-year-old girls’ mothers’ complaint led to police charging Anderson, 22, with two misdemeanor crimes — tattooing the body of a minor and reckless conduct.

Police say that Anderson gave the girls three tattoos between them at Anderson’s residence at 411 Endicott Lane. One of the customers had previously received a tattoo from Anderson after a friend set up an appointment with him through Facebook, according to one of the mothers’ statement to police.

Anderson does not have a business license, but wasn’t charged with that crime. He is otherwise unemployed, police said.

The teen-agers told police that Anderson used clean needles from previously unopened packages during the procedures, but didn’t ask them for identification to verify their age.
