Del. officials shut down illegal tattoo parlor

DOVER, Del. -- Delaware health officials have ordered a Magnolia man to stop giving tattoos in his home.

The Delaware Division of Public Health issued a Cease and Desist Order to 38-year-old William Smiley on Feb. 23 for running an illegal tattoo parlor out of his home without the required permits.

Officials are asking anyone who has received a tattoo from Smiley to contact their health care provider for an evaluation due to the unsanitary conditions of his home studio.

Officials say they learned about the illegal studio through a law enforcement tip.
