Should the Body Art Industry be Regulated?

March 17th, 2009
I was surprised when I recently discovered that a friend of mine, who is a professional in the body art industry, actually does not support the idea any kind of regulation that seeks to put demands or restrictions on tattoo and/or piercing establishments. While I agree that some regulations go too far and I don’t support anything that can actually make it more difficult for a tattoo or piercing artist to do their job, I did support laws that made it more difficult for scratchers to thrive. But the conversation with my friend got me thinking – is regulation really a good thing and does forcing scratchers even deeper underground really protect the public? This article explores both sides of the issue, and I encourage anyone to add their thoughts by commenting below.
