“Body modification: a case of modern maiming?”

Andrew Beetham, in his article “Body modification: a case of modern maiming?” J. Crim. L. 2018, 82(3), 206-208, analyses and critically evaluates whether it is possible to consent to an assault, in general, and whether, in particular, the practise of body modification by a tattoo artist can be lawful. Briefly identify the key arguments advanced by Mr Beetham, and, giving reasons, discuss whether his critical evaluation of the key concepts is persuasively argued. State whether you agree with his conclusion, giving reasons.
