Tattoo: The Current Situation in Mainland China

As from 2018, No Visible Ink on Public Medias


China’s top media regulator, the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television, decreed that media programmes “should not feature actors with tattoos, [or depict] hip hop culture, subculture and dispirited culture”


And this has been widened to televised sports, concerts, music festivals etc.
