Prosecutors charged a Bartlesville mother with one count of child neglect after she permitted her 10-year-old daughter to get a tattoo with ink that contained human ashes.

In a court affidavit, Bartlesville Police say Jennifer Wilson, 31, allowed Brandon Brown, 31, to give the girl a tattoo on the left side of girl's body at Wilson's home.

Prosecutors charged Brown, who police said admitted to them he was not a licensed tattoo artist, with a misdemeanor count of unlawful tattooing.

The affidavit states a school counselor notified Washington County Child Welfare about the tattoo in late August. Child welfare investigators then contacted police.
