SALISBURY, N.C. -- A Salisbury woman has been arrested for tattooing her 12-year-old daughter.  Police say Anna Yates put a heart shape design on her daughter's upper arm.  

Yates said she thinks her rights are being taken away because she is the one who consented for her daughter to get the tattoo and she actually did the tattoo.  

The tattoo was discovered by a DSS worker while Yates and the child were in their office.  Yates is facing one misdemeanor count of tattooing a person under 18.
