Should America follow the lead of Canada and put tattoo parlors in prisons to reduce disease outbreaks?

Anytime anyone relaxes a standard we all lose. giving into inmates who cannot say no even when they put themselves at risk teaches them the wrong lesson. Anyone who puts themselves not to mention others at risk should be denied health care not put on a poor baby list.

no, why do they need tattoos?
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 6/7/04 - 2:41:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sure, and give them bars, strip clubs, and shopping malls as well.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 6/7/04 - 2:55:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sure, why not.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 7/25/04 - 12:49:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
i havent hered about that but i think its a great idea
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 7/25/04 - 1:23:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
is there a need for anyone to have a tattoo to begin with?

a person with a tattoo is a pretty good sign they are trash.

17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 7/25/04 - 1:34:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
They should all have a tattoo on their foreheads that reads "I AM A CONVICTED FELON."

"a person with a tattoo is a pretty good sign they are trash."

wow that's a pretty harsh geralization....
17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 10/7/04 - 1:51:13 AM EST (GMT-5)
lol hell it's just a tatto parlor hell let them have it they can't even walk to the store
17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 10/12/04 - 9:35:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, a lot of guys make their own tattoos in jail, it'd be so much better if they could have it done with the risk.

Yeah, it'll REALLY help lessen blood-borne diseases. You don't think that maybe some of those diseases are coming from the heroin they're shooting into themselves? I don't think we should give prisoners anything more than what they have, which is a place to sleep and eat and serve their time.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 11/24/04 - 4:10:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
You can't put a tatoo parlor in jail - only the tattooists.
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 1/1/05 - 4:00:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
Erm... where did they get those facts from? I dont think we have tattoo parlors in Canada.
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 1/1/05 - 4:07:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
They need tatoos to look tough and badass.
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 1/1/05 - 4:26:53 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think they need it if they are stupid enough to tattoo themselves and get a diease then let them have at it.
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/9/05 - 12:23:05 AM EST (GMT-5)
dramastace, I'm willing to bet a lot more prisoners get tattoos (or raped) than shoot heroin.

Either way the lesson should be: don't go to prison, or you will probably get AIDS.

17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/9/05 - 12:23:56 AM EST (GMT-5)
I can see how it would be a good idea. But prisons definantly have BETTER things to spend their money on.
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/9/05 - 12:48:57 AM EST (GMT-5)
Why not? They should charge them for it though-make them pay for it since the cost shouldn't rest on the taxpayers.
17 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 2/28/05 - 1:57:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
Maybe they should get the price at the right rate to not encourage them to collect dozens of tats out of sheer boredom.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 4/1/05 - 8:22:01 AM EST (GMT-5)
Why not just take away their needles, ink, sharp implements etc so they can't do it. If, however they manage to tattoo themselves and get ill, its their own fault for being so god damn retarded.

How about clothes shops on-site in case they prick their finger whilst sewing old clothes? Free prostitutes with free condoms in case they infect each other or become depressed? Thats what we go to work for anyway isn't it - making their life a bit more bearable.

NOT

Why panda to criminals? - they already have a higher standard of living than many innocent people.

17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 4/1/05 - 8:23:17 AM EST (GMT-5)
meh maybe!!
16 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 4/8/06 - 8:00:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
who cares about people in prison? they deserve to suffer!!!!!!!!
16 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 4/8/06 - 8:02:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, if the inmates WANT tattoos, you shouldn't give it to them.

They're in prison, ffs.

to answer the question, i dont know about the tattoo parlour idea. i think they shoul dbe forced to procure and assemble the products necessary for a prison tattoo gun, and present it before they're allowed to use sterile needles and ink. i mean, they're going to get them anyways, why not assure the prisoners dont get hepatitis?
