Police: Westbrook man violated probation by tattooing underage girls

By Ryan McLaughlin, BDN Staff

SCARBOROUGH, Maine — A Westbrook man accused of tattooing two 14-year-old girls without a license is facing more charges after he was arrested again Wednesday, police said Friday.

Joshua Grant, 35, who was staying at the Downeaster Motel, was picked up by Scarborough police detectives on a federal warrant for a probation violation, according to Scarborough police Detective Don Blatchford.

The detective said Grant was on probation for a felon possession of a firearm conviction, and he violated that probation after his arrest for the tattoo violation, Blatchford explained.

Grant is currently being held at the Cumberland County Jail.

On March 28, Grant was arrested at the motel and charged with tattooing a minor, tattooing without a license, unlawful sexual contact and assault according to Blatchford.

Blatchford would not say exactly where on their bodies Grant tattooed the minors.

“I don’t want to get into specifics on that,” the detective said. “No matter where he tattooed them, it’s illegal.”

The females also didn’t have parental permission, according to Blatchford. Grant also didn’t have a valid tattooing license.

Blatchford said additional charges are pending in the case.
