Somacandra: Because they have nothing better to do than invite court challenges by legitimate businesses with a customer base----both with First Amendment protection?
Tom_Slick: I think licensing tattoo artists is a good idea, outside of that STFU
serpent_sky: I can't see any argument against making sure that there are health codes and safety laws that tattoo artists, piercers, and those who do dermal implants and scarification must abide by.
serpent_sky: Tom_Slick: I think licensing tattoo artists is a good idea, outside of that STFUI can't see any argument against making sure that there are health codes and safety laws that tattoo artists, piercers, and those who do dermal implants and scarification must abide by. But beyond that, consenting adults should be able to do what they wish with their own bodies.This seems to be a recurring theme with these lawmakers: "how can we exert control over what people do with, and to, their own bodies?" Whether it's scarification, bedroom activities, or whatever else.... why do they care so much? How is this even slightly a pressing public issue?
James!: Looks like they're only prohibiting sub-dermal implants. The rest of the bill looks to be pretty reasonable.

ManateeGag: all other problems in Arkansas must have been solved.
scottydoesntknow: Specifically, Irvin's 387 bill would slap a state ban on scarification tattoos as well as dermal implants.While I think both of these are just unbelievably stupid, I support any person's right to get one.
skinink: First of all, if you're looking at the tattoo epidemic as a way to express your individualism, then it is obvious to me that you don't know the meaning of the word. How can you truly show any type of individualism by taking part in a movement that encompasses thousands, if not millions, of people? At this point, no matter how hard you try, you cannot get a tattoo that someone doesn't already have. The idea that somehow scarring your flesh with some insipid symbol or demonic imagery will say to people you're a free thinker is truly misguided. The issue lies with your own personal self-esteem.If you're a person who feels a desire to tattoo himself, you're one of two types of people. The first group is drawn to tattooing because of a lack of self-respect and a love for themselves and for who they are, which causes these feelings to manifest. "If I had a cool tattoo, maybe then girls will notice me." Or "If I get a tattoo, guys will think I'm sexy." Once the root of the action is realized as being that of a desperate ploy for attention due to not appreciating themselves for who they are, and that they are placing that needed feeling of acceptance in the hands of others, the true motivations become clear.Another personality type is the person who thinks way too much of themselves. The idea that someone may not notice them is unacceptable. They're awesome. A demi-god among us. This sad delusional state almost always manifests in over adornment. Be it tattoos, gold jewelry or outlandish silly outfits. However, all of this is just the wrapping to a package of arrogance, self-centeredness and an inflating feeling of self-importance commonly known as being a douchbag.

mbillips: Oddly, this is still legal.
Savage Belief: mbillips: Oddly, this is still legal.Does that really say "Devilficus"?Maybe the guy likes satanic dicidious trees?
