Illegal Tattos

A 26-year-old Stockton man is facing criminal charges after he gave a tatoo to a female who was just 16 years old.

Winona County Sheriff's Investigator Kraig Glover said  Scott Alan Robb is facing as many as seven gross misdemeanor counts for also failing to have a tatoo license.

Glover said the girl's father complained about his daughter's tatoo and an investigation showed Robb did not have a license which is now required under state law.

Glover said in 2010 the state legislature outlawed tatooing anyone under 18, even with a parent's permission. A 2013 law requires a tatooing license from the state Department of Health.

Glover said Robb was unaware that the changes in the law were made.

The girl had received permission from her mother but even that was illegal.

Glover said there are three known instances where Robb allegedly gave the illegal tatoos to people. The tatooing had been done privately.

The case has been turned over to the county attorney's office for review.

Robb is also currently on probation in an unrelated case, according to Glover.
