New regulations in Fort Wayne | General Discussion | Forum
February 3, 2008
New regulation bans branding, cutting, dermal punches, implants, nullification, scarification, suspension, and tongue bifurcation to ensure safety.
Simply banning something is NOT the best way to ensure safety. In fact, it forces these activities underground to be performed by amateurs in their homes. If you want to regulate something, truly manage it and provide inspection and monitoring; banning it is just ignoring the problem.

I doubt that's going to have the intended effect anything. If anything its just going to force such activities further underground. It'll make it more difficult to engage in such activities and people will be more likely to get work done by unreputable artists because of the illigal nature of such activities. Its most certainly not going to prevent people from doing such things.

i honestly don't believe they are worried about health and safety, but more over are just trying to control, deter, and prevent something that theydon't understand or agree with. we had to deal with this problem at my high school. they tried to put a ban on tattoos and piercings because it was intrusive to the learning environment. the ban didn't last very long, but that was just a high school. in local governments its easy to claim that they are going it for the greater good and protection of citizens. if they wanted to protect people, instead of banning it, they should research and inform. i just believe they are afraid of what is different and trying to run the new world in old world ideals. sorry about the rant. lol
I agree that prohibiton tends to be in response to a moral judgement or lack of understanding rather than any actual risk assessment. It also rarely works!
