Prison TattoosI was flipping through my old magazines and read an interesting article about a program in Canada where the plan was to add tattoo parlors in 6 big prisons – The pilot program was designed to curb the rapid spread of HIV and hepatitis C among Canadian inmates. Tattoo parlors with sterile needles were set up at six prisons for a one-year trial period that ended Sept. 30.  Unfortunately, conservatives axed the program – my thoughts are that, not only was it a good idea as far as health concerns, but also, teaching a very viable trade – I’ve seen some GREAT prison tattoos (and crappy ones) – but they were done on the sly, in a hurry, and with inferior materials but some were very good quality –
OH, well – another good idea shot down by conservatives -!!!
