Branding Your Life
Washington D.C. has proposed 65 pages of new regulations for tattoo parlors. According to the regulations, tattoo artists are forbidden to tattoo any person for at least 24 hours after a customer requests it.
In my opinion, this proposal shocks the American conscience. Not because stupid, drunken people wake up in strange places bearing tattoos with mysterious meanings, but because the morning-after birth control pill has been made available to people of any age without a prescription. A sexually active eleven-year old needs no regulation, but the fifty-year old guy must wait 24 hours before imprinting “Mom” on his bicep.
America definitely has its priorities straight.
