WAVE 3 News – Louisville, KentuckyLouisville Representative wants tattoo shops to post warnings about military service
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – there could be new artwork in tattoo parlors, it's not a picture, but a warning. Rep. Ronald Crimm, R-Louisville, wants to require shops to post signs warning people that they can't join the military with tattoos in certain places.
Crimm says he sponsored House Bill 32 after meeting a woman who passed all the tests to get into the Kentucky Air National Guard, but wasn't allowed until she got a tattoo on her neck removes.
Tattoo artist Todd Tripton who works at the Ink and Dagger Tattoo co. was denied from joining service himself.
“He's like–you got any tattoos?” said Tripton mimicking the recruiter. “I was like, yeah the ones right here, and he was like, anything in your neck? I was line not really. It's kinda right here. I turned around and showed him, and he said, no that won't work.”
Tripton says a sign would not have prevented him from getting one in the middle of his neck.
His co-worker agrees that she does not think it will work.
“A lot of recruiters will go even to high schools when they have a career day and have a booth up,” said Zanna Schneider. “That would be a great time to have a sign like that up.”
The bill states the sign must: “require the notice to warn that any tattoo on the neck, forearm, or lower leg automatically disqualifies the wearer from military service in the United States Armed Forces.”
Army recruiter Sgt. Jason Fellows says that is stricter than army requirements.
“Tattoos that are on the face or head automatically disqualify and anything that's on the arm is subject to disqualify–depends on whether it's sexist, extremist, racist, or gang related,” said Fellows
There are also certain restrictions dealing with lower legs that could disqualify recruits.
House Bill 32 passed through a House Committee Wednesday afternoon unanimously. it now heads to the Floor.

Actress and Dancing with the Stars alum, Kirstie Alley appeared on “the Ellen DeGeneres Show” today (1/6/2012), where she sat on her hands just so she wouldn’t touch her hair, a neurotic habit she says her family and friends comment on a lot. Kirstie was trying to win a $1,000 bet that she wouldn’t touch it more than 2 times.
“Don’t look at me,” Kirstie kept telling the audience because that would make her touch her hair and lose the bet.
Kirstie talked about a possible TV series she will be in where she will play an Italian-American, which is why her hair is dark again. She’ll have a Brooklyn type accent.
Dating was also among the topics discussed. Alley says she’s tired of dating “psychos” and “players” and men who are “unwell intentioned.” She plans to shift her focus to “butt ugly men.”
“I’m thinking ugly men might be the solution,” Alley told Ellen, “I’m talking about butt ugly. Because I go for really handsome men and I think butt ugly, they’ll be appreciative, and I don’t think they’ll be calling me Miss Alley … if you’re ugly give me a call.”
The “Miss Alley” part came from a story she told about making out “all night” with a star-struck male half her age who asked permission to call on her again, and even after that session, asked if he should call her “Kirstie” or “Miss Alley.” LOL. Miss Alley? That sounds awful!
Alley has not been married since her divorce from hunky Parker Stevenson in 1996. She dated much younger actor, James Wilder in 1997 and they even got engaged but broke up in 1999. That’s about as far from butt ugly as you can get.
The actress will turn 61 on Thursday, January 12th and also told Ellen she wanted an Aston Martin and a tattoo.
DeGeneres accommodatingly had tattoo artist Dan from L.A. Ink, waiting backstage. they played a game to determine which tattoo she would get — her children’s initials or a heart with an Ellen banner and an arrow through it. well you know that was fixed cause Ellen won but you know Kirstie wasn’t going to have Ellen’s name tattooed on her, even if her future butt ugly dates wouldn’t mind. She got her kids’ initials tattooed on her wrist.
Kirstie’s kids were adopted when she was married to Stevenson. Their full names are William True Stevenson (age 19) and Lillie Price Stevenson (age 17).
At the end, Kirstie showed off her tattoo birthday present and said she loved it. She seemed to tower over Ellen, but they are actually the same height — Miss Alley just had heels on. they didn’t say whether Kirstie won her bet, but it sure looked like she did – we didn’t even see her use up her 2-touch allowance.

The singer, 17, also has Jesus’ name tattooed in Hebrew on his rib cage an an image of a dove on his left hip. BTW, his dad Jeremy Bieber, has a dove tattoo.
Bieber makes no secret of his deep faith. never has. "I'm a Christian, I believe in God, I believe that Jesus died on a cross for my sins," he told the AP last year. "I believe that I have a relationship and I'm able to talk to him and really, he's the reason I'm here, so I definitely have to remember that. as soon as I start forgetting, I've got to click back and be like, you know, this is why I'm here."
Are the tattoos reminders of why he's here? Because three seems like a lot of reminders for a teenager. We know tattoos are considered fashion statements but most states don't let minors get ink without parental consent. so his parentals must be cool with it, right?
Do you dig 'em Beliebers?

The “Jesus Myth” hypothesis (the notion not only that certain parts of the Jesus story might not be literally true, but that the figure of Jesus himself is fictional) has zero scholarly legitimacy. It’s propagated online by pseudo-scholars like Acharya S. and eager pubescent atheists and skeptics. the truth is, it’s rarely been addressed in scholarly circles because no serious scholarly argument has been advanced in its favor. the explosion of do***ents referring to Jesus, the development of a fast-spreading community that was devoted to Jesus’ teachings, the willingness of the early apostles and early Christians to die for the truth of the story, all together make it clear that Jesus was indeed a historical person. Put differently: we have more historical evidence for Jesus than we do for almost any other person in ancient history, and if we cannot believe that Jesus existed then we may as well throw out the entire methodology of historical study.
Further, the notion that Jesus’ story mimics the stories of other ancient religious figures is absurd. It’s easy to make a superficially convincing case if you’re willing to play fast-and-loose with those stories, and with Jesus story, to produce faux parallels. But when you look at the details, the whole argument falls apart.
See the work of R. T. France or Ronald Nash if you want to read actual, scholarly treatments of these things. or if you want something online, see this four-part series — I’ll link to the fourth part, since it includes links to the other three: http://www.patheos.com/Resources/Additional-Resources/Is-Jesus-Christ-a-Myth-Part-4-James-Hannam.html
