The Meadville Tribune reports 30-year-old Melissa Becker, of Centerville, was sentenced Tuesday by a Crawford County judge. She'll also serve two years' probation, the Crawford County prosecutor's office confirms to PEOPLE.
She and 33-year-old Randall Charlton III have pleaded guilty to corruption of a minor and tattooing a minor for the incident on May 14. Becker also pleaded guilty to a third charge, endangering the welfare of a child – a first-degree misdemeanor, the prosecutor's office said. Charlton is scheduled for sentencing Oct. 9.
Crawford County prosecutors say Charlton and Becker didn't contact the girl's mother for permission to be tattooed. That's against the law in Pennsylvania.
The girl told police Charlton tattooed the smiley and the vulgar term for a woman on her left forearm.
