I had read about this a few days ago and it is stupid.
It is a classic example of Washington being a day late and a dollar short and attempting to pass reactive legislation that is roughly 50 years
Facts are, most reputable tattoo parlors will NOT tattoo a person who has been drinking, much less drinking enough to be in a state of "black out".
It thins the blood causing the person being tattooed to bleed more, which makes it tougher for the ink to take. This could potentially cause a problem
with the finished tattoo, which then could get a shop owner sued in civil court.
This was not the case back in the 1950's, 60's, 70's or 80's. Back then it was common to get drunk and get tattooed, especially with Military. It
just does not happen much anymore, at least not with a reputable business, but Redneck Joe who is doing tattoos on his homemade gun from the back room
of his trailer on the other hand, will.
Bottom line.. if you are stupid enough to get drunk and get tattooed and you wake up regretting it later. Then too bad! It's a good lesson on
personal responsibility. Your actions have a consequence. Deal with it and blame yourself.
