SUMOskinny magazine is the ultimate guide to college life. Part local, part national, and all college.
Starting this week, tattoo and piercing establishments are to begin being inspected for sanitation standards and practitioners will need to be registered with the city and meet health and safety regulations. With the passage of the Safe Body Art Act, body art establishments will have to pay a yearly registration fee and stay updated on health practices.
Personally I think that an establishment’s success relies so heavily on customer satisfaction that no body art place could stay in business if they were constantly infecting people (can you say potential lawsuit?) At any rate, I guess body art enthusiasts may feel a little safer knowing that someone is looking out for them.
Stay safe, needle fans!
