LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — The Senate passed a bill on Tuesday that would ban non-traditional body art and skin implants.
The bill’s sponsor, Senator Missy Irvin of Mountain View, wants to limit body art procedures, particularly scarification and dermal implants.
By a 26-4 vote, the Senate moved to outlaw scarification, a procedure involving the scarring of the skin using heat to form a tattoo without ink, and implants that place ornaments under the skin.
The bill now goes to the House.http://www.fox16.com/mostpopular/story/Senate-Passes-Bill-to-Ban-Certain-Tattoos-Body/4i2Hk2OjXkK5ScwF-h-0Vw.cspx
