doyner:  I'm pretty sure we'll see soon how this ties in to abortion.

I have to admit, I would probably support a ban on intrauterine tattooing procedures. A fetus is simply way too young to make an informed decision whether or not to have "ALANIS4EVAR" tramp stamped above its hiney.

So THIS is what they mean by "get government off of small businesses' backs".  Hmm.  Interesting.  I don't think I ever want to be around one of these folks and have them declare that they have zero interest in buggering me dry, because I'll be biting a pillow within seconds.

Somacandra: Because they have nothing better to do than invite court challenges by legitimate businesses with a customer base----both with First Amendment protection?

Mambo Bananapatch: FTA:

"Besides civil liberties advocates and the tattoo industry clearly opposing a law, which would cripple self-expression..."

Because if you can't get a screw in your forehead, that's it for self-expression. Not a word will be heard by anyone in the state after this...


Of course not, there will be plenty of self expression, all done within the confines of what the state deems acceptable. You have the unfettered freedom to select between Self Expression A, Self Expression B, or Self Expression C. Only a Commie would need any more than that.

TexanBoy: You know, you may not agree with it, but damned if it isn't their right to vote that way and get it passed in their state. It was obviously important to enough people there to go through, so you should abide by it even if you disagree with it. Unless you're a filthy statist that thinks state's rights are meaningless.


No one is saying that passing idiotic laws that will get shredded in federal court as unconstitutional is exercising a right they don't have. No one.

What everyone is saying is that it's a waste of time and money and addresses no real issues and will be shredded in federal court.

So I guess you won the imaginary argument pretty effectively but not, as yet, the actual discussion.

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.


A lot of bites! Ten for ten. Bravo!

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.


Exactly, how else are Arkansas businesses supposed to know which resumes to put into the round filing bin next to the desk?
