Tattoo you? Okay, there are no laws against it. Tattoo your pet? It might not be so easy, if lawmakers have their way. In New Jersey, three assemblymen are pushing a bill that says people are committing acts of animal cruelty by tattooing or piercing their dogs or cats. Meanwhile in New York state, Governor Andrew Cuomo is ready to sign a measure that passed the Legislature making it illegal to tattoo a pet. This fad, however, is likely to continue everywhere else in the U.S. as tattooing and piercing are still growing in popularity. As it happens, the ASPCA doesn’t have a problem with pet owners branding their dogs or cats with small inking that indicates they’ve been spayed or neutered.
