Juan Lara's tattoo parlor will be moving from his Avondale trailer to an Arizona state prison.
An amateur Avondale tattoo artist who traded a tattoo for sex with a teenage girl was sentenced to prison today after pleading guilty to two counts of attempted child prostitution and two counts of unlawful tattooing for the April 2010 incident.

Juan Lara, 38, was in a Maricopa County Superior Court this morning where he was sentenced by Judge Glenn Davis to 7.5 years in prison and three years probation for the child prostitution charges. Additionally, he was sentenced to 1.5 years in prison and five years probation for the unlawful tattooing charges.

The sentences are to run concurrently.

Lara, who goes by the street name "Memo," was running a makeshift tattoo parlor out of a room he rented at an Avondale trailer park when he gave tattoos to two 16-year-old girls without their parents' permission.

One of the girls paid for her ink by having sex with Lara.

At the time of his arrest, police thought Lara was targeting young girls, and thought there could potentially be more victims -- although, none came forward after his arrest.

It is very sad to note that illegal tattoo procedures are happening such as this one. It is also very alarming since most who are involved are minors. Other amateur tattoo artists who are engaged in similar activities should be held responsible for the unlawful acts that they committed.

this bald clean cut guy is more proof to never trust a bald clean cut short haired male. 99% of male crime is committed by clean cut short haired males. look at any big city police mugshots and see for yourself.

prison rape is a myth. your biggest daily concern in prison is violence and to keep from getting beat up or stabbed to death with a home made prison shank. this is your biggest worry 24/7 365 days a year when doing time in the can. not rape. its just not like that. you look at a guy wrong in the joint and you might have a very violent problem to deal with. I can tell MR Big Fella never did time in any prison or joint or he would know this info.
