NH Woman Charged With Tattooing A Minor

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — A Portsmouth woman is headed to court to face a child endangerment charge for allegedly tattooing a minor without her parents’ consent.

Police say 27-year-old Stacy Nieves went to the minor’s home and tattooed the person’s initials on her right ankle, knowing the recipient was under the legal age of consent.

Sgt. Richard Webb tells the Portsmouth Herald police were notified about the tattoo by the minor’s mother.

Nieves allegedly used a tattooing machine with a power supply that was confiscated by police.

The minor’s age was not made public.

Nieves was released on $1,500 personal recognizance bail and scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Portsmouth District Court.

It was not clear if she had a lawyer.
