Marvin Newton II

Georgetown police are looking for a man wanted for illegal tattooing and other alleged crimes.
Police say Marvin Newton II, 38, of Ibis Drive has warrants charging him with receiving stolen goods, tattooing, operating a business without a license and forgery.
Police began investigating Newton in September when a man filed a report saying his 17-year-old daughter received a tattoo from Newton at a residence on the corner of Shade and Moss streets.
The complainant said he was “very upset the tattooing had taken place at an unsanitary location and without the parent’s permission,” the report states.
Police were provided with photos of the teen as she was getting the tattoo.
The teen said she was introduced to Newton by some friends and she told him her age before he began the procedure. Newton allegedly responded by telling the teen to not tell anyone who gave her the tattoo or where it took place because someone had tried to sue him for his tattooing practices.
Newton reportedly told the teen he had been tattooing for ten years.
Anyone with information on his whereabouts should call police at 545-4300 or call 911.
