Teen hasn’t spoken to mum for three years after dreamcatcher tattoo tore family apart

Casey Victory, from Australia, needed her parents signed permission to get a tattoo when she was just 15. Her dad said yes but her mum was unimpressed and decided to have the dad charged.

A teenage girl has told of how her dad could go to jail and she hasn’t spoken to her mum in years after a tattoo tore her family apart.

Casey Victory needed her parents’ signed permission to get the ankle tattoo when she was just 15.

She was living with her divorced dad Bradley, who has has tattoos himself, at the time and he agreed she could get the inking.

Casey went ahead with the dreamcatcher tattoo, which she says symbolises good luck in native American culture and had a significant meaning for her at the time.

But 45-year-old Bradley has now been charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm and wounding a person with intent to cause grievous bodily harm after her mum took him to court.

Casey’s mum Nadene Rae Rees lodged court proceedings over the incident, alleging the decision was made without her consent.

And Casey, siding with her dad, hasn’t spoken to her mum since.

Mr Victory told Australian show A Current Affair on Wednesday night that he was very protective of his daughter.

Appearing with Casey by his side, he said: “I’ll do anything for Casey, to protect my daughter. Yeah, I would go to extreme [lengths for] all my kids. They mean the world to me.”

Casey then admitted she hadn’t spoken to her mother.

Adding her dad was “all I could ever ask for. He’s the best dad. He does everything for me.

Dad Bradley was happy for Casey to get the ink

“I can go to him about anything, teaches me how to do stuff, can ask him anything.

“He’s always there for me when I need help

Lawyer Sam Macedone told the Australian TV show that it was quite legal for one parent to give consent.

Mum Nadene was not impressed with her ex-husband’s decision

“Having this man charged with assaulting her is, in my mind, ridiculous,” Mr Macedone said.

At a first court appearance at Picton Local Court on Wednesday, the GBH charge was dropped, but the ABH charge is still being fought.
