Couple charged with tattooing children

  • Follow Latest News

SUMMERVILLE, Ga. — A Chattooga County couple was arrested for tattooing six of their children.

WAGA-TV reports that PattyJo Marsh and her husband, 34-year-old Jacob Edwards, tattooed themselves and six children using a plastic pen body with a needle made from a guitar string connected to an electric motor.

Five children got a crosslike tattoo on their hands and a sixth had "mom and dad" inked on his arm.

The pair were arrested after the biological mother of two of the children complained the tattoos wouldn't wash off.

Marsh tells WAGA that they did it because the children asked them to.

Marsh and Edwards are charged with three counts each of illegal tattooing, second degree child cruelty and reckless conduct. Both bonded out of jail Friday evening.

I see Ispy4u is all over this

I see Ispy4u is all over this one! He or she loves the "patty jo" or billy bob type names. When 90% of the stories are about Jaquan and Latavious, I guess I'd be excited when these names make the paper if I were Ispy too.

If Ispy, had more than an 8th

If Ispy, had more than an 8th grade education he's understand statistics and the hard facts about crime and he would see what is really destroying our cities. Believe me, it's not Jethro and his tattoo gun.

Hey Ispy, pull up the online

Hey Ispy, pull up the online inmate inquiry and tell me what you see. Is it full of serial killers and people who murder their neighbors, or is it the other guy that is always wrongfully accused?

PattyJo and Jacob should have

PattyJo and Jacob should have "Child Abuser" tattooed on each side of their face, so that the General Public may have the opportunity to congratulate them on their stupidity.

Lord knows what else must be

Lord knows what else must be going on at that zoo. The biological mother should not have to expose her childrent to those two losers anymore by sending them for visitation.

What a couple of donkeys. They should never be allowed to care for children again and definately not spread their stupid genes around any further.

"using a plastic pen body

"using a plastic pen body with a needle made from a guitar string connected to an electric motor"- one or both of them have been in prison. I hope they terminate their parental rights.
