WATCH: Kylie Jenner Illegally Tattoos Her Initials on Lionel Richie’s Son

Kylie Jenner did something illegal, but it wasn’t anything malicious … She tattooed her initials on Lionel Richie’s son’s hand. Why is it illegal? TMZ reports that:

According to the LA County Dept of Public Health, only people over 18 can give tattoos — or even participate in the process — and Kylie is only 16.

Miles Richie was apparently hanging out with Jenner, sister Khloe Kardashian, and French Montana in a recording studio when artist John Petro was tattooing Richie. TMZ writes:

We’re told Miles (who is 19) was getting ink from John Petro, who has tatted up the likes of Soulja Boy and Lil Wayne … when Kylie decided she wanted to help out. Sources say Kylie threw on some gloves and put her hands on top of Petro’s as he administered the tat — sorta like when a father lets his kid sit in his lap and “drive” a car.

If Jenner gets in trouble for this, she could face a misdemeanor and $1,000 fine, while Petro could have his tattoo license suspended.
