The NYT on tattoo removal:

Most of Dr. Tattoff’s clients are women ages 25 to 35, said James Morel, the chief executive of the company, which has given more than 13,000 tattoo laser treatments since opening here in 2004. “Maybe women are getting more tattoos than they used to,” Mr. Morel said, “or maybe they just have a higher level of tattoo regret than men.”

I don’t mind tattoos on women at all, within reason. You can put me down as generally pro-tramp stamp. But I have to seriously wonder about any system of government which depends in any way, shape or form on the opinion of people who can’t look far enough ahead to envision a future in which they might not want their skin marked with a specific pattern of indelible ink.
