A mother who wanted her daughter to feel loved, was arrested for allowing the child to get a tattoo that expresses Jesus’ love for her.

Police were called to a school in Georgia, after the mother’s 12-year-old daughter was found with a tattoo on her shoulder.

According to a police report, an officer was called to Arnco Sargent Elementary in Newnan, after a fifth-grade teacher discovered that the student had a tattoo that read: “Jesus loves” on her right shoulder.

The girl’s classmate told her teacher about the tattoo, which she saw when the 12-year-old girl wore a strapless dress to a dance class.

The tattoo was described in the police report as being of a blue-green color with the word “Jesus” written above a cross and “loves” written below.

When police began investigating the incident, the girl did not want to get her mother in trouble so she stated that her father made her get the tattoo.

However, she later changed her story by saying that her father did not force her to get the tattoo, but that she wanted it.

However, after speaking with the girl’s mother, 35-year-old Emma Nolan, police learned that the girl does not see her father and that she had been estranged from him for some time.

Police arrested the mother and the tattoo artist Brenda Gaddy. Both were booked into the Coweta County Jail, on a charge of tattooing the body of a person under the age of 18.
