    Mother Accused of Tattooing Children

    CHATTOOGA COUNTY, GA (WRCB) -- The mother accused of tattooing her own children invited Eyewitness News inside her home today to set the record straight.
    "We were making it look like it was a cross," said Jo-Jo Marsh, "so the kids could have something they could say it was."
    Jo-Jo Marsh shows Eyewitness News the tattoo on her son's hand. The mark is a cross-like symbol left by a home-made tattoo gun with a guitar string as a needle.
    "We didn't even break the skin barely," said Marsh, "they are very tiny, just through a few layers, on the top, they will fade away, that's how minuscule this is."
    Marsh and her husband, Jacob Bartels, face child cruelty charges after detectives found the same mark on six of the couple's seven children. One of the children is just 10 years-old.
    "There was a seven year-old child that they determined was too young for the tattoo at this time," said Chattooga County Sheriff John Everett.
    The couple's 17 year-old has a larger tattoo on the arm. Marsh admits her husband used the gun to draw it too, but insists she tested it first to make sure her children were not harmed.
    "These tattoos are so minuscule, they will fade away," said Marsh.
    We asked Marsh if she knew it was illegal to tattoo children in the state of Georgia.
    "Oh God no," she responded, "that's why I was tripping so hard, that's why I was so upset."

    Gotta love the thug life. How much you want to bet that mommy and daddy are gangbangers and / or have spent some time in prison. Maybe they need to go back, they haven't learned how to live in society yet.

    My understanding is this. You have to be 18 yrs of age to be allowed to have a tattoo, if I am not mistaken. Just like it is 18 yrs of age to use tobacco or 21 yrs to consume alcohol.

    In GA, it's 18 years of age, period. You can get pierced younger than that with parental permission, but tattooing is not a day before your 18th birthday.

    Looking at the interview footage, the parents are trailer trash.

    In some states you can get a tattoo before you're 18 with your parent's permission. That's obviously not the case in GA. And yes, they're trailer trash fo sho.
