Arizona Supreme Court Rules 1st Amendment Protects Tattoos

The WSJ reported that the Arizona Supreme Court issued a unanimous ruling on Friday that tattooing is a form of free speech with full protection under the U.S. and state constitutions. 

“Its decision Friday came in a case in which a lower court ruled that cities can no longer use long-established regulations to block where certain types of businesses can locate.”  The Court stopped short of forcing Mesa, Ariz., City Council to allow tattoo artists to open a parlor.
