Casey Anthony's tattoo artist speaks out
Tattoo artist Danny Knight talked about Casey Anthony in a TV interview.
8:41 AM EDT, June 24, 2009
The owner of the tattoo parlor where Casey Anthony got inked after her daughter went missing, spoke on a national news show recently to discuss his interaction with her.
Danny Knight, owner of Cast Iron Tattoo, told Nancy Grace that Casey Anthony spoke only briefly of Caylee during a visit to his Orlando shop. She told Knight the same story she'd told her parents, boyfriend and friends -- Caylee was with the nanny.
While making an appointment to get a third tattoo, Casey Anthony told Knight she would bring Caylee with her to the next appointment. However, Casey Anthony was jailed and never got the tattoo.

Caylee Anthony to 'Jon & Kate Plus 8': Children as props

You see the unsettling trend in some of the most-discussed stories these days.
Poor Caylee Anthony, just 2, was discarded like trash and left to rot.
Adults have stepped forward to explain these situations. Jon and Kate Gosselin have aired their troubles several times on their shows. Grandparents George and Cindy Anthony have toured news programs. Adult friends praised the Heathrow family at a funeral Monday.
But all too often, children have become supporting players or disposable backdrops to selfish adults.
It's a trend that's a disaster for our culture. Ignore or shortchange children, the country will suffer in the long term. They are not props. They are the future.
What does it say about a culture that doesn't recognize its greatest gift, its children, and treat them as such?
