Yeah, I think all of you who hate tattoos should just leave those women to me. I mean, I know it's a tough job and a sacrifice, but I think I'll manage.

I don't hate tattoos so much as I find the vast majority of them to be tacky or just plain dumb. For every beautifully done work of art, and I have seen a few really amazing tats, there are at least a couple dozen idiotic ones that people walked in on a whim and picked out of a book when they were a teenager. Just look at all the 30-35 year old women with tribal tramp stamps, arm bands, Asian characters, butterflies and stars. It was a huge fad 5-10 years ago.

Find me one person who has this and then I'll take your argument seriously


Agreed. 2 of my tats I designed myself, and 1 more is of an obscure Aztec deity.

spidermilk: The government has a right to be involved. The government is charged with generally keeping you safe by KEEPING OTHER PEOPLE FROM HURTING YOU. An unlicensed tattoo giver isn't keeping you safe, he is endangering you by shoving non-sterile needles into your body. The government shouldn't say 'You can't get tattoo.' but should say 'You can't get unsafe tattoo.'

and as for the scarification and trans dermal implants- as long as it is fairly safe I don't see how they can ban it or how a full ban would possibly hold up. Put it this way- people can get breast implants for purely cosmetic reasons- and that is standard surgery, right? Pretty high chance of infection/problems. So maybe they make rules about what qualifications your tattoo artist must have, but they have set the bar pretty high for what cosmetic modifications you can get.


I don't necessarily disagree with you, however, if I'm feeling a bit argumentative, I might say: The government shouldn't say 'You can't get a tattoo,' but should say 'you can't give an unsafe tattoo.'

Anyway, about a year or so ago (more or less) the state of California enacted tougher regulations on tattoo artists and shops. Safety, sterilization, blah, blah, blah. And I can't tell you how many people around here I heard seriously making the 'regulations are killing small business!' argument.

Are they banning wearing shorts during winter or pants down to the ankles? No? Shoot them.

Authoritarian idiots putting laws on things they have no business in and do not understand.  I do what the fark I want. I suspect most everyone else feels the same.  When people in power stop you from doing what the fark you want and use their own narrow short sighted machinations as an excuse you probably get bitter and angry.  This is a bad dynamic for a government and a horrible overreach into the freedoms of individuals to have complete self determination at every opportunity possible.

This means allowing people to do stupid things.  So long as they aren't harming others, what right do we have to stop what is clearly an artistic expression being done upon consenting adults in a safe and hopefully sterile tattoo parlor.  Once you ban these things, I'm sure they will still occur, and those that do still want to participate in this kind of body modification will simply have to rely on home brewed methods which will inject a lot of dangerous variables into the mix well above and beyond the risk of having a permanent body modification that you come to later regret.  If you come to regret it a week later when it gets infected because of bad methods you'll wish you'd have had the opportunity to go to a professional to have it done in the first place.

This is stupidity I can live with.  It has no direct effect on anyone except the person getting the operation and that is their choice to make just as it is mine.  End Of Story.  Make sure the facilities are clean and the customers are adults and get out of the way of legitimate business.


/no piercings, no tattoos myself, NTTAWWT.

That too. Though, my local librarian has a few tats in discreet places, and everyone knows that librarians are freaks in bed.

Smacks of old-timey religious folks disliking "vanity", that is unless it suits their aesthetic.

It just lets me know who the fark you really are.

propasaurus: Oldiron_79: 8Fingers: Was out and about today shopping, it was warm/hot and sunny, so the women were showing lots of skin. It struck me as to how I found women with no visable tattoos, (or little ones on an ankle or shoulder blade) to be so much more attractive, fashionable, not fat, pleasent to look at and admire. Than the ones with covering tats. The ones with covering tats tended to be just kinda gross looking in general, and then they addd tats. I could never be a tattoo artist with having to squeeze so much disgusting blubber to put a kids birthdate and pic on some fat chicks arm.

I've noticed the same

That's nice. Do we all have to submit to your standards of beauty?


Fat women should hide thir skin and slink around in shame, clearly.

Serial: Alright, so here's the thing.  This article is sourcing the original version of the bill.  The version that passed was filled with amendments that were put in place with the help of body modification professionals.  A friend of mine worked with government and had this to say after the bill passed:

Friends in Arkansas.. the legislation we worked on goes into place today. What this means for you:

Piercing guns are now illegal (class A misdemeanor per offense) to use on any part of the body other than the earlobe. This includes the cartilage of the ear, and yes that means Walmart, Claire's, etc are NOT permitted to pierce the cartilage of the ear.

It is illegal to sell piercing and tattoo supplies to the public. This means places like tattoo shopping marts, pawn shops, etc are committing a class A misdemeanor per sale they make.

All body art is limited to 16 year of age and up. It is illegal to perform any body piercing, tattoo, etc on a person under 16 with the exception of piercing the lobe of the ear.

Studios MUST use jewelry that meets ASTM requirements as implant grade and have Mill Test Certificates to prove it or jewelry as listed by the Health Department as acceptable for initial piercing (certain types of gold, niobium, glass, etc). This means if you go to a studio that uses externally threaded jewelry, they are very likely using jewelry which is banned.

The Department of Health has listed these as violations which can result in closing of the studio. If you are aware of violations occurring, please do your part and report it to the Department of Health in Little Rock. Violations of the first three may be reported to your local law enforcement as they are punishable as a class A misdemeanor or higher offense. Help us make local and state agencies realize that we will not let the hard work it took to get these laws in place go unenforced. Make the state do their job.

TLDR:  The linked article is a fluff fear-mongering piece that was written without actually reading the final bill.  There is NO ban on tattooing, scarification, branding or piercing.


Look at you, being all informative and rational.

If there's no ban, that means it's an obligation. Everyone MUST get a tattoo, scar, branding, and piercing.

/Just using the same rationale someone tried using to say that if Sharia law couldn't be banned, it MUST be therefore considered when making laws

mbillips: Oddly, this is still legal.

Those Leviticus tattoos are not an accident. That's the biblical passage about "do not tattoo your body". It's intentionally contradictory, and a conscious decision that someone made.

It is not for me to judge their intentions, but it's definitely not the same thing as some white girl getting a chinese tattoo of "stupid whore" which she thinks means "purity"
