    IN - Marco Gonzales for tattooing 13yo girl, Hobart, 2005

    The last few months of Marco Gonzales' life sound like a bad country-western song:

    He tattooed a minor. His trailer burned down.

    Now, he's going to jail.

    Gonzales, 29, pleaded guilty Monday in Hobart City Court to tattooing a minor, a Class A misdemeanor. He was sentenced to a year in jail, but with suspended time and time already served, he will serve only an additional 90 days in Lake County Jail, where he has been since his Oct. 8 arrest.

    Gonzales also was sentenced to a year of formal probation with a ban on any tattooing during that time and was fined $500 plus court costs. He also must pay to have the tattoo removed if the girl chooses.

    Gonzales' saga began in early August, when a friend brought over his 13-year-old girlfriend and asked Gonzales to tattoo her at Gonzales' Cressmoor Trailer Park home. Gonzales - who is not a licensed, professional tattoo artist - complied, tattooing her name, Jacquelynn, across her lower back.

    The Hobart Police became involved a short while later when the girl's mother found out about the tattoo, said Hobart Police Lt. Leo Finnerty.

    "She was not at all happy," he said.

    Finnerty said Gonzales was upset Monday in city court when he was taken back to jail, not only because of the added jail time, but also because the girl's boyfriend never paid him for the tattoo.

    Sounds like he's one sandwich short of a picnic!

    question: how old was the 13 year-old's boyfriend?
