Want a free tat? Go to prison!

By johnboy 26 November 2011 25

The Canberra Times has an intriguing piece on musings by the Chief Minister on introducing a “safe tattooing” service to the prison, possibly as a reward for good behaviour, to reduce blood bourne infections.

If being covered in tats is once again a prison thing will this reduce their fashion appeal in wider society?

Kinda wish people would stop being cynical about measures to stop infection. Guess who pays for the expensive health care and medication if they do get sick?

I’m guessing the same people who pay for their housing, children, methadone, dole and transport (feel free to add anything I may have left out).

In return we get robbed, threatened or assaulted (feel free to add anything I may have left out).

I like your work.

Free internet, free gym membership, free tattoos, where do I sign up?

What about the swimming pool, sauna and massages. Oh yeah, they’re fictional too…
