N.Y mother, 33, is arrested after letting her 10-year-old son get a tattoo of his name ‘in full-size block letters’

A 33-year-old New York woman was detained after allowing her 10-year-old son to get his name inked in “full-size block letters” on his forearm at the motel they were staying at.

According to authorities, a New York mom was detained after letting her 10-year-old son receive a big tattoo of his name over his forearm.

Crystal Thomas, 33, was detained on suspicion of endangering the welfare of a child and later released with a summons to appear.

The young man discovered that a man in the adjacent room could tattoo him while he was staying at a motel with his mother and older sibling.

According to the authorities, his mother did not watch over him while he went to the shop next door to acquire the tattoo.

After the 10-year-old youngster went to them to have Vaseline placed over it, the school nurse recognized the tattoo.

According to Lloyd Police Chief James Janso, who conducted interviews with Thomas and her son, the tattoo was done in a room in a hotel where Thomas was residing with her two children.

Prior to her arrest this month, Thomas and her two kids had been residing at the Highland Motel in Highland, close to Poughkeepsie.

The 10-year-old youngster indicated interest in obtaining a tattoo, which was being done by a “gentleman in the room next to them.”

He said, “She wasn’t in the room with him.”

The tattoo, which is “around six to eight inches in length” and is on the 10-year-inner old’s forearm, was described by Janso as “not a professional job.”

When the child went to his school nurse to ask for Vaseline to apply to his new tattoo, Lloyd Police learned about it.

The school nurse informed the school resource officer about the tattoo, who then called the police.

According to Janso, his investigators are working on leads as the Lloyd Police Department searches for the person who inked the victim.

According to Janso, the suspect is no longer at the motel, which typically only hosts guests for “transient stays.”
