Taxpayer-funded BC tattoo removal



A government program to remove gang tattoos has been launched in British Columbia. Scott Hennig of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation says the program is a waste of tax dollars. Removing a tattoo takes as many as 15 treatments, each of which cost $100.

many cultures and continents. Although most psychological studies of persons with tattoo removal have been restricted to psychiatric inpatients, prisoners in correctional institutions, and military personnel (thus reflecting only specific populations), one common conclusion is that, of all the motives for obtaining a tattoo, the quest for personal identity is central. The skin serves as a useful canvas on which to portray statements of individuality, sexuality, belonging, machismo, frustration, boredom, and anger. However, the quest for identity by teenagers often becomes irrelevant or embarrassing by age 40 years, and 50% or more of individuals later regret their tattoos.
