Don’t Tell Mom The Babysitter Tattooed Us

Here’s what ‘s not on the approved activities list when you’re babysitting (no matter how bored the kids get): tattooing your charges. Virginia mom Melissa Delp and her boyfriend Daniel Janney returned home from a date to find that their babysitter,  20-year-old Alexander Edwards, had inked Delp’s two young daughters (both under the age of 13) with an at-home tattoo kit. Without anyone’s consent, Edwards reportedly inked one girl’s name on her shoulder. There’s no no word on what kind of tat the other girl received.

But here’s where it gets even more awful. Instead of calling authorities and pressing charges against Edwards, Delp and Janney tried to remove the girls’ tattoos with razor blades, which only caused more scarring. Now, everyone’s in big trubs. Delp, Janney and Edwards are all facing malicious wounding and felony child abuse charges. I don’t even know what to say. Those poor girls. [Roanoke]
