Chicago Tattoo Artist Charged With Sexually Assaulting Female Customers

A tattoo artist on the south side of Chicago, Miguel Deleon, has been charged with sexually assaulting women at his in-home work location. The first assault surrounding his current charges reportedly happened in 2021. He allegedly assaulted two other victims in 2022, including a 17-year-old girl.

Miguel was arrested by the Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force this week for aggravated criminal sexual abuse, unlawful restraint, criminal sexual assault, and attempted criminal sexual assault. Authorities believe he has assaulted additional victims who have not come forward.

Deleon reportedly advertised his services online, asking female clients to arrive alone to receive their services due to Covid 19. According to Cook County authorities, he was out of jail on a $50,000 bond for two previous sexual assaults when the new string of attacks happened.

He has a Feb. 21 court date for his current charges.
