By Tom MertonPosted February 24, 2019 01:08:00After months of campaigning to have tattoos removed from all Chinese citizens, China is now making its case.
The country’s leading tattoo artists have all signed a letter to the media calling for a ban on tattoos, which they say are a source of embarrassment and embarrassment to the country’s people.
“Tattoos are considered a form of pollution and they should be removed,” said one tattoo artist in a video posted on Weibo, China’s most popular social media platform.
“The people need to understand that they have tattoos, but they are not a part of China.”
The letter was signed by dozens of tattoo artists in the country, including a tattooist at the famous Beijing tattoo parlour where the new trend has been taking off.
The trend has attracted international attention and has been met with scepticism.
But many tattoo artists and celebrities are in favour of the move, with the head of the tattoo industry group in China, Wang Jianlin, saying that there is “nothing wrong” with it.
“We need to remove tattoos, the tattooist must be the one to do it, otherwise we won’t be able to make any progress,” Wang told the South China Morning Post newspaper.
“For the sake of our society and society’s image, we must stop all this.
This is the only way to preserve our identity.”
China’s tattoos, like other cosmetic procedures, have been banned in the rest of the world since 2005.
In the United States, which has the highest rate of tattoo removal in the world, more than 1.4 million people were removed from the US last year, according to a survey by the National Tattoo Removal Association.
In China, a tattoo removal bill, which was passed in the legislature last month, does not go into effect until December 2018.
In a country with one of the highest rates of tattoo infection in the developed world, the ban is seen as a major victory for anti-tattoo campaigners.
China’s decision to ban the practice came as the country faces a global wave of tattoo infections.
The Global Health Foundation reported that more than 600,000 people in the US were infected with the infection in 2016, with more than 100,000 deaths reported.
“As a result of the China ban, the number of cases of human papillomavirus (HPV) has fallen in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea and the United Arab Emirates,” the foundation said.
“But the number is still growing in other countries, and the number has reached epidemic levels in China.”
China banned tattoo removal last year in a bid to tackle the problem, with many tattooists and celebrities taking to Instagram in the hope of boosting their popularity and their reputation.
“People with tattoos can have beautiful tattoos, they can be sexy, and I’m proud to be a part on this,” one tattooist, who is not named in the letter, told the Associated Press.
“It’s about having fun and making the world smile.”
