New Safety Regulations For Tattoo Parlors
A new state law will make sure the pain of a tattoo is temporary, even if the ink is not.
Tattoo parlors will have to adhere to more rules designed to cut the spread of disease.
The law that took affect January first of this year will impose more guidelines on tattoo parlors including undergoing a safety course about industry specific disease risks, like MRSA or HIV.
Every county health department will offer the safety course.
Alachua County interim director Paul Myers says it's not about a regulatory crack down but about safety.
Alachua County's Health Department is working with the Florida Department of Health to figure out the best way to offer the safety course before the six month deadline.
