Senate Passes Bill to Ban Certain Tattoos, Body Piercings

The Senate passed a bill on Tuesday that would ban non-traditional body art and skin implants.
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- The Senate passed a bill on Tuesday that would ban non-traditional body art and skin implants.

The bill's sponsor, Senator Missy Irvin of Mountain View, wants to limit body art procedures, particularly scarification and dermal implants.

By a 26-4 vote, the Senate moved to outlaw scarification, a procedure involving the scarring of the skin using heat to form a tattoo without ink, and implants that place ornaments under the skin.

The bill now goes to the House.
