    Government Wants to Ban Certain Tattoos and Piercings, Bill Passes in Senate

    Government Wants to Ban Certain Tattoos and Piercings, Bill Passes in Senate | Alternative

    It's the Arkansas Senate, not the US Senate. Good job keeping the government out of our private lives!

    Seems pretty in line with what the south wants; if its what the people want (if it goes to a public election) then it should pass otherwise it shouldn't just be legislated.

    yes, the party of smaller government and personal rights strikes again. It is great how republicans bitch and moan about a nanny state and then show us the only reason they are complaining is because they simply do not want the democrats doing their job. of course they really should think of what they are doing. How the hell are you supposed to practice your second amendment right of getting a gun implant when they won't allow implantation?

    Come on folks less more government is a good thing, right? Or no? What do we want, more or less? I'm so confused!
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    They shouldn't legislate it at all. Personal rights, like the right to your own body.

    All these people reacting and neither the posted source nor the referenced source has the actual text of the bill.

    That said, I don't see that these will be banned, just that the procedures are not allowed to be performed in the state. The state as I understand it does have the power through licensure to control such procedures. Even beauticians have licenses in most states that I'm aware.

    I personally think they look crappy, but as long as it is done in a safe manner, I don't care if people want swastika tattoos on their forehead.

    Personally, I could care less how a person defaces their own body, if that's what they choose to do - Would I bastardize my nose like Michael Jackson did? Hell no. Would I turn my skin into a walking billboard? Hell no. Would I ban others from doing it? Hell no.

    I'm not even sure I'd have a caveat for hate speech or gang symbols, although I find those detestable. But then I find lots of things detestable in a free society - but nothing as detestable as a society where freedom doesn't exist.

    Banning supply will not significantly reduce demand, simply make the banned good/service go "off grid", move to a neighboring jurisdiction, yeild higher prices/profit and deprive the local gov't of any level of control or taxation now present. This was tried with for alcohol (and other recreational drugs), gambling and abortion with terrible results. Those that would ignore history are doomed to repeat it.

    The fact that the bill never passed was ignored. Many bad ideas get proposed in bills, fortunatley most do not pass. Many in gov't now see the role of the state as to protect us from ourselves. Hopefully elections will have consequences and those that introduced or sponsored this moronic nanny statism idea will soon loose their jobs; if not, then AK deserves what its morons in their gov't attempt to do to them.

    Taking the article at its word, this would be an idiotic bill to pass.
