You read the title right, New York had to ban cosmetic pet tattoos and piercings. Giving pets cosmetic tattoos and/or piercings will now be crime in the state of New York.
In all honesty, its pretty sad that this is even big enough where it needs to be a law. This should be classified as unethical as you are forcing your pet to endure pain.
Now there are exceptions that usually require veterinary supervision. But those usually are not cosmetic.
Some trends I just don’t get and this is one of them.
