    America needs a new age, passive revolution. We need to put politicians in their place and show them that they serve us. Im starting to finally get fed up with the bull****.

    The bill refers only to scarring types of tattoos and sub-dermal implants, both of which are quite dangerous. Especially scarring. Every tattoo or piercing on the girl in the article's picture would be perfectly legitimate.

    This bill most likely would not meet first amendment scrutiny, but its purpose seems to actually be about safety, not censorship.

    Banning body modifications would just lead to back alley modifications. Why do they want to kill people?

    Thank you for this information. In this case I do agree with the legislation.

    It's the Arkansas Senate, not the US Senate. Good job keeping the government out of our private lives!
    Not to worry, rocket. They will submit a comprehensive 12,000 page bill explaining what kind of tattoos one can have, and what size. Of course, there will be other common sense items in there as well, but we won't be able to find out what those are until the bill gets passed.

    Based on the text of the bill, it won't survive Judicial review. It's clearly unconstitutional. Tattoos have long been ruled free speech and trying to outlaw them isn't going to happen.

    Furthermore, merely because the people want something does not mean we should legislate it. The Nazi Party convinced the German people to ghettoize the Jews. That's an extreme case but the notion that if they want it, we should let it happen is a bad stance to take.

    Maybe they should just require ID to get a tattoo.
