IMPORTANT DECISION

Posted in ANNOUNCEMENTS by misterroadtripper on December 19, 2010

Dear Bob:

I don’t know if you know about this ruling. The business and action of tattooing is a First Amendment Right now.  A ban of tattooing because of health concerns is no longer a valid reason to deny a license.  On the face of this it is a victory.  But if we dig a little deeper into our trade, the idea that regulation can somehow get rid of homemade and illegal and unsanitary tattooing is naive. The bottom feeders will always exist.  But now at least in the United States it appears that those who want to practice their trade in a professional and artistic manner are protected from the conservative groups who have sought to deny them the right to do so.  Kudos to Mr. Anderson and the legal team that kept fighting this one.
