A judge has ordered a risk assessment to be carried out into the danger a predatory tattoo artist poses to teenage girls.
The High Court in Glasgow heard that Paul McLellan, 46, sexually abused teenage girls as he tattooed them.
He was found guilty of eight offences of sexual assault and conduct towards five victims, four of whom were aged just 15.
McLellan was acquitted of a further four charges of sexual assault involving two more teenagers on not proven verdicts.
During his trial earlier this year he admitted a string of charges of tattooing minors at addresses in Dundee, including his former flat in Bonnethill Court, in 2012 and 2013.
Judge Lord Boyd of Duncansby ordered a risk assessment and told McLellan: “You have a clear propensity to commit sex offences against young girls.”
He deferred sentence on McLellan, who is in custody, until July.
The trial heard that teenagers – including one girl who wanted a tribute to a dead relative – went McLellan to be tattooed.
But McLellan used the opportunities to molest his victims and expose himself during sessions.
One teenager said he pushed her hand on to his private parts as she was having a tattoo applied.
Another teenager told the court that McLellan had put his hands on her breasts and exposed himself.
This was the second time McLellan had been tried for the offences, having successfully appealed against conviction because of misdirection by a sheriff.
