Ashley WeirLAGO VISTA, TX – When you get a call from your son saying that you need to go pick him and his sisters up from your ex-wife’s place, you know it’s going to be a rough day.

But when you find that your children have been tattooed, your ex is passed out drunk and won’t answer the door for cops, it can’t get any worse, right? Not for a Travis County man who got a call from his son on Monday, say Lago Vista police.

According to the arrest affidavit, the son told his dad that “they had a surprise for him and that he might not like it.” When the father showed up at his ex-wife’s house in Lago Vista, he found his kids-ages 13, 10 and 9-with “fresh tattoos on their ankles.

The children’s mother, 31-year-old Ashley Weir, was arrested, charged with allowing her boyfriend’s brother to ink the kids. Which is where it does get worse. The boyfriend’s brother? You guessed it: a registered sex offender.

Weir is currently in the Travis County jail, charged with three counts of tattoos prohibited for certain persons, all misdemeanors. Bond was set at $15,000. She was still in custody as of Thursday. No attorney was listed for her.

According to NBC affiliate KPRC the 13-year-old had a tattoo of a cross, his 10-year-old sister had an infinity symbol and a cross, and the 9-year-old girl was sporting a heart and arrow. No word on whether said sex offender was just getting some practice in, or is embarking on a new career.

The affidavit says: “The children stated Ashley told them to get the tattoos, but not to cry or whine about it when it hurts.” Gee, and people wonder why they’re not still married?

In his statement to police, the childrens’ father told investigators that when he came to get his kids, Weir was “passed out drunk,” and the children weren’t being supervised. (To be fair, her being conscious didn’t show much supervision, either.)

When Lago Vista cops arrived, they found the front door was already cracked open, according to the arrest report. Weir was in bed, and, “initially did not respond to our announcements,” documents allege.

After “several” announcements, Weir finally allowed investigators in. They found that: “Ashley was intoxicated. She had an odor of alcohol emitting from on or about her person. She wobbled, swayed and was unsure on her feet while walking.”

Weir told police that she knew the designs of the tattoos, and gave her permission for her boyfriend’s brother to do the ink. Needless to say, she wasn’t exactly forthcoming about who had done the tattoos, which kinda suggests she knew what her beau’s brother had done time for.

Weir faces three years in prison if convicted on all three counts.
