Parker Rock Hill Police

A Rock Hill man was charged with running an illegal tattoo parlor out of his home, according to police.

Wayne Lewis Parker, 33, of McFadden Street, was charged with two counts each of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and tattooing a person under age 21, according to jail records. He was placed in the Rock Hill city jail and released Thursday on $4,400 bond.

A woman told officers Sunday that she discovered her 16-year-old son had been driven by someone to a Rock Hill home to get a tattoo, according to a police report. The teenager got a tattoo on the left side of his chest at the home.

Police say the teen went with a friend to get a tattoo but that the friend did not get one.

Officers searched Parker’s home after getting a search warrant and found tattooing materials, the report states.
