I am watching My tattoo addiction on chanel 4, the tattoist has said it is a nightmare tattooing a drunk person.

so my debate is Should tattoo serve drunk people or not.

No they shouldn't IMO.

Where I had my tattoos won't, you have to book in advance sometimes months and any whiff of drink or drugs and he won't do it, apparently it can affect how the tattoo takes and looks thus tarnishing his reputation.

of course they shouldn't and the good ones don't

MrsTerryPratchett Thu 18-Oct-12 23:09:28

Absolutely not.

What did you think of the scorpions on that guys face?

It's illegal isn't it, if you know they're drunk?

Or am I wrong?

Any reputable tattooist won't tattoo a drunk person, I might be wrong apart from the obvious reasons of the person hating it when the sober up I think they also won't do it because you bleed more when drunk and don't sit still.

i didn't like it

You're absolutey right! However, I did laugh at the man with on his chest and a collection of other drunk forrays into the tattoo parlour!

They should do it and it sould say the following

i am a drunk pratt who cant hold my drink right on there forhead

McHappyPants2012 Thu 18-Oct-12 23:20:46

the man with a miley cyrus obession worried me

laikalooo Thu 18-Oct-12 23:21:08

Brilliant idea Fishwife!

laikalooo Thu 18-Oct-12 23:22:08

That was a very odd one! What a strange choice of a person to be fixated by.

By law, you can't tattoo anyone who is drunk. Apart from the common sense aspect, it also thins the blood so the person will bleed more.

My friend is a tattooist and she won't tattoo anyone if she gets a whiff of alcohol

She also makes people book a couple of weeks in advance so no impulse tatts either

They should no more do something permanent and painful to a drunk person than a restaurant should sell a £500 bottle of wine to someone already rolling drunk.

It's a Consent issue isn't it?

After all no parent would let their 8 or 10 year old have their ears pierced, would they? Because they cannot give valid consent.

And certainly I - as a compassionate Christian - who happens to be male - wouldn't want women (or men) to treat their bodies as objects without a long Sober period of reflection first.

Speaking as someone who, aged 18, got very very drunk one afternoon, went to the tattoo place and got the pattern off a tie that I stole off a guy in the pub tattooed down my thigh I have to say YANBU at all.

StateofConfusion Thu 18-Oct-12 23:53:03

missy shock atleast it was your thigh and easily covered

flyoverthegoldenhill Fri 19-Oct-12 07:43:31

missy we have to know whatwas the tie like. First I thought of something classy maybe a naice paisley. Then I had visions of a Christmassy Homer Simpson ?????????????????

Sirzy Fri 19-Oct-12 07:48:45

Yanbu. The place I had my tattoo won't let you book an appointment unless you know exactly what you want and then it can be a few months before your appointment. No chance of it being a drunken (or sober!) whim!

What about men humility?
Have you not read Corinthians? wink

MeFour Fri 19-Oct-12 07:53:10

Sorry I just saw the or men in brackets, though I'm not sure why it is. Would people not have done the job.

hellsbells76 Fri 19-Oct-12 07:59:51

Eh? Plenty of people pierce their BABIES' ears, never mind letting an 8 or 10 year old have it done.
