Hip-hop and Tattoos Banned in China

Published on 06.24.2018 Taboo on tattoos and hip hop
The Chinese government prohibited showing hip-hop performers and artists with tattoos on TV
Broadcasting tattoos and other elements of subculture, as well as everything that relates to hip-hop and "soulless" art was banned on Chinese TV. 
 
This decision was made by the country's main media regulator - the State Administration for Press, Publications, Radio, Film and Television of the People's Republic of China. The ban also includes artists with tattoos, "tasteless" and "vulgar" artists, artists with a "low ideological level," artists with a "tarnished reputation" and "problematic morality," as well as those who have "morally and spiritually departed from the Communist Party.”
 
Many Chinese rappers were cut from a number of TV shows, which caused a wave of outrage on Weibo, the Chinese version of Twitter.
