Body Artists Infuriated Over Proposed Tattoo Law: It Would Be a “Job Killer”

 

” Washington D.C. is looking into a new law that could make people wait 24 hours before getting a tattoo. Fatty, the owner of Fatty’s Custom Tattooz in D.C., expressed his outrage over such a law today on Fox and Friends.

For nearly a decade, he said the body art community has been asking officials in D.C. to give them comprehensive body art regulations. “After nine years of testimonies and discussions, they’ve essentially presented us with a 65-page document that would put us out of business.” “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bill Passes in Senate

 

” Every day the government is making new attempts to take control of various areas of our lives, from our financial lives to our personal choices.  In one recent case, the US Senate just passed a bill that would ban certain types of body art and piercings.

Fox 16 reported that:

The Senate passed a bill on Tuesday that would ban non-traditional body art and skin implants.  The bill’s sponsor, Senator Missy Irvin of Mountain View, wants to limit body art procedures, particularly scarification and dermal implants.  By a 26-4 vote, the Senate moved to outlaw scarification, a procedure involving the scarring of the skin using heat to form a tattoo without ink, and implants that place ornaments under the skin.  The bill now goes to the House.”

 

 

There is no aspect of our lives that is immune from State intrusion .
