Drawing on experience
South Carolina is lifting its ban on tattoo shops, which leaves one state where the practice remains illegal.
And why is that? Mike snickers:
Our Oklahoma legislators likely felt such a ban encourages an influx of tattoo-hating companies into the state.
But of course. And let's face it, we're never going to run out of either dermatologists or Southern Baptists not that there's a whole lot of either in Iran, which ranks as just about the only other place on earth that bans tattooing.
(Disclosure: I have no such decorations. I believe I am the only family member who lacks them, in fact. I attribute this less to aesthetic concerns than to a general dislike for needles.)
