Tatted up terriers and pierced pugs? C’mon people, really? Just say no to piercing & tattooing pets!

New York state just banned piercings and tattoos on pets.

No, not the “how-to ID my-pet-if-he/she-goes-missing” kinda tattoos.

NY state just outlawed the “I think my dog would look super cool with a pierced nose ring or a flower tattoo” tattoos.

The people who do this weird-ass thing call them decorative pet tattoos and piercings.

Yeah, it’s a thing.

Wow, missed that loop completely.

According to Reuters yesterday –

New York is banning pet tattoos and piercing under a state law aimed at curbing the trendy practice of inking or even maiming animals to make fashion statements.

Trendy?

Body art like tattoos and piercings on pet animals?

Fashion statements?

Cough*stupid* cough. Just pass the scooby snacks and walk away. If common sense doesn’t prevail, or animal cruelty doesn’t come to mind when taking Fido in for a tat, maybe a $250 fine or a little time jail time will do the trick.

The law does make exceptions for markings made for identification or medical reasons, but to keep the wackiness to a minimum which is apparently now necessary, those exceptions only include preapproved letters and numbers. Even those funky hairless cats are hatin’ on this dopey trend.
