The “DB” tattoo on the boy’s shoulder was spotted after the Department of Family and Children Services made a home visit to the family.

At the time of his arrest, Mr Ashley told police that “DB” had stood for “Daddy’s Boy.”

However the Judge hearing the case has questioned whether tattooing a child should be deemed as illegal

“I am trying to figure out why this is illegal. Is it illegal to pierce your little girl’s ears?” Judge Tami Colston told the courtroom.
