A local tattoo artist is facing charges after allegedly tattooing a 14-year-old.

Thirty-two-year-old Joey Williams was arrested after a mother told officers her teenager had been tattooed without her permission.

Williams was arrested at the Red Roof Inn on Shallowford Road after admitting he had, indeed, inked the teen.

He's been charged with illegally tattooing a minor.
