If the government dictating what you can and can't do with your body bothers you, SPREAD THE WORD!

But this is small government dictating what you can and can't do with your body. Who could have a problem with that?

A government small enough to be implanted in your body.

Ladies and gentlemen - the Party of Small GovernmentTM at its best.

And since they are placing such value on Leviticus - shall we assume all shellfish restaurants are closing next?

So... what exactly happens if you have said body modification done in another state and travel to Arkansas? Do they confiscate your skin or something?
 
2013-10-21 08:59:33 AM
Such bullshiat.

How will I be able to easily identify people with horrific judgement if they ban scarification and dermal implants.  More importantly, how will we identify the whores without tramp stamps?  This is an outrage!

So the government should be allowed to shove an ultrasound probe up your vagina if you are considering exercising your reproductive rights, but you can't make the personal choice to get a piercing?  Freedom-loving, small-government conservatism strikes again.
 
2013-10-21 09:01:55 AM
Enjoy the party of limited government, y'all.

This only bans - non traditional body modifications.  Tradtionalness to be determined by the small government Ministry of Family Values.  Go teapublic teapublicans

So this young, southern couple is getting married in Arkansas and on their wedding night they walk into a beautiful honeymoon sweet. They sit down on the heart shaped bed and the bride says she has something to tell the groom. She told him that she was a virgin. Well the groom was furious and went storming out.

He went to his dad's house and his dad says son what are you doing here? And the son says that his wife had just told him she was a virgin. He says well you did the right thing son, if she isn't good enough for her family she sure ain't good enough for ours.

If it's coming from small government we have to all agree it's just. States are incapable of passing legislature that is not the direct word of god.

Exactly.  If it were those big government libs doing this, it would be grounds for 2nd amendment solutions.  But this is just small government getting off your back (and keeping things like tattoos and piercings off your back as well!)
 
2013-10-21 09:06:07 AM
Here's the actual bill.

Someone may try to fight it on first amendment grounds, but I really don't think this is bad law.  I'd prefer a more stringent training requirement over an outright ban, but this isn't too restrictive on speech, nor is it as vague as TFA makes it out to be, unless the law it amends is already unconstitutionally vague.
 
2013-10-21 09:06:49 AM
In order to enforce this law, the Arkansians are going to have to have a fully funded enforcement arm to patrol the streets looking for immodestly and non-traditionally tatooed people. A sort of modesty patrol...

 I can probably recommend some consultants from Iran, Pakistan and the Ultra-Orthodox parts of Israel to help accelerate the hiring process.

/Laser like focus.
 
2013-10-21 09:07:07 AM
I'm not defending this law, but I don't think it is religious zeal driving this so much as fear of unfamiliar procedures. I can see how the idea of shoving a foreign body under your dermal tissue could unsettle boomers. I'm sure in their minds they're preventing health hazards in a similar vein to banning the reuse of hypodermic needles.

I'm not saying their right, I'm just saying I doubt it's a fire and brimstone thing.
 
2013-10-21 09:07:09 AM
We should probably outlaw Protestantism. That's not traditional.

Come to think of it, neither is democracy.

Tramp stamps are fine. It apparently says in the bill that both "traditional" and "non-cosmetic" tattoos are approved.

"Artist" means any person other than a licensed physician who performs body art on a human;

Why can't a physician be an artist?

Yeah, it's a long list of definitions that don't have any practical effect on the bill, combined with a prohibition on subdermal implants.  It looks like a giant, sweeping bill that got gutted down to nothing.

With regards to the "scarification" language, I wonder how this would affect those members of the S&M community who engage in kinky things that do leave scars, even if non-permanent (at least, if done correctly is non-permanent).

I'm still waiting for one of the Dominionists in a state government to introduce biblical anti-usury provisions into law. I will chuckle heartily.

Those who speak of small government, usually mean a small federal government. They want the Federal Government to be small enough to not be able to interfere with their local, big government meddling.

I don't think Leviticus makes exemptions for ear piercing and tattoos. Almost as if something else is at work here

They don't want to ban breast implants, since those are traditional for upstanding busybodies.

Bacon should also be on the chopping block.  As well as those evil elderly gardeners who plant tomatoes RIGHT beside corn.  The nerve.

Those are prosecutable anyway due to things like assault laws.

Oh for fark sakes. I went to the website for the Congress of Arkansans to confirm she was a "small-government" Republican and found that when you click on any member of the House or Senate where it lists their important information, like party and district, right up at the top of the list of important facts is "Church Affiliation" *facepalm*

It's Arkansas. What were you expecting?

Lets try something here

"Permanent cosmetics" means the application of permanent or semipermanent pigmentation by the penetration of the skin with a needle or instrument to:
- The face for cosmetic purposes; or
- Any part of the body for scar coverage or other corrective purposes

PLUS

"Artist" means any person other than a licensed physician who performs body art on a human

EQUALS

"You just farked over every orthodontist in your state."

I may have misread that as "penetration by an instrument" as opposed to "application with an instrument" Carry on.

You hear that, women with Alopecia?  Yeah, you're forced to deal with the fact that all of your hair fell out and will never grow back, and as an extra bonus your elected representatives have now made it illegal for you to have your eyebrows tattooed back on so you might as well forget ever having the right to feel like you look normal again.

Well if "branding" is allowed, why did they make scarification illegal, that's a bit contradictory.

He can be.  He just wouldn't have that restriction.  He'd be a "licensed physician" under the law, if I'm reading it right.  Nothing saying that a licensed physician can't also do tattoos, unless that's in the law this one amends.
