GLEN - A Fultonville woman is facing charges she tattooed a 16-year-old, Montgomery County Sheriff's officials said this week.

Terrie Lynne Chamberlain, 50, of Van Epps Road, was charged with one count of unlawfully dealing with a child, a misdemeanor, officials wrote in an arrest list released this week. The date of the arrest is listed as Oct. 29.

Chamberlain is accused of giving the teen the amateur tattoo over the summer, Montgomery County Sheriff's Sgt. Michael Lewis said. Chamberlain was known to the 16-year-old's family, Lewis said.

The investigation began after a member of the teen's family reached out to investigators recently. The teen's mother was also unaware of the tattoo until recently, Lewis said.

In New York State, tattooing of those under the age of 18 is against the law, according to the state Department of Health. It is illegal even in a situation where a parent is aware and wishes to give consent, according to the department. 

Chamberlain was processed and released to appear in court this week.
