SANFORD, N.C. — Lee County sheriff's deputies arrested a man for allegedly tattooing his girlfriend's underage daughters.

Deputies said that Ricky Lawson gave two tattoos each to 15-year-old and 17-year-old girls. He faces four misdemeanor counts of tattooing a juvenile.

North Carolina law prohibits anyone from tattooing a person under age 18. Unlike body piercing, there is no provision under state law for parental consent for a minor to obtain a tattoo.
