SPRINGFIELD, Mo — Springfield City Council will meet Monday and try to stamp their own mark on tattoing and body piercings.
The new sections would come in response to the growing practice of "suspensions" in residential areas: being pierced through the skin with thick hooks and hanging by ropes in the air.
Supporters of a new ordinance want Springfield City Council to ban such a practice in neighborhoods and out of children's sight.
Opponents liken it to banning freedom of speech and expression and also question how to regulate such an ordinance.
Other items on Monday night's agenda include:
*A special ordinance authorizing the City of Springfield to enter a Cost Share Agreement with Missouri State University to fund and install a new traffic light at National Avenue and Monroe Street.
