MIDLAND - A tattoo lands a Midland businessman behind bars.

18-year-old Micahel Thames was arrested earlier this week.  

He's charged with tattooing a minor and running an illegal tattoo business.

Investigators caught him after a 16-year-old girl showed up at home with a tattoo.

She didn't get her parents permission.

Authorities say he did the work at a business he was running out of his home.

No bond has been set.
