Washington, D.C., is pushing to enact strict rules for ‚Äúbody art‚ÄĚ parlors. The city‚Äôs health department claims customers face serious health risks and potential regrets that they must be protected from, according to The Washington Post. Yet these same officials reject regulation of the city‚Äôs large abortion industry.

Well apparently you can't get diabetes from a tattoo, but if you have poorly controlled case of it, Tattooing & Diabetes could cause a lot of problems. A Christian shouldn't get a tattoo for theological reasons, anyway.
