The Law Is Cracking Down On Tattoo Shops

A lot of people kind of brush of this kind of thing but there has been a huge problem here lately with tattoo shops, parlors or studios operating without a license and tattooing underage people. Some may think this is no big deal but it is a huge deal. Rhianna is even in some trouble for tattooing her friends at the tattoo shop she frequents all the time in New York because she is not a license tattoo artist. Tattooing is an art and not just anyone can pick up a tattoo gun and give a tattoo. It takes a lot of training and trail and error before an artist is ready to tattoo people. Not to mention all the health risks that are involved. Officials are even cracking down on people who tattoo out of their home. There are so many things that are wrong with this. For one they more than likely do not have the proper sterilizing equipment in their house and they don’t have the machine there to copy the tattoo design onto transfer paper, thus leaving them to free hand which is a very scary thing because if they mess up there is nothing that can be done.

This is why it is so very important for you to make darn sure that the tattoo shop, parlor or studio that you use is operating under the laws in your state. Every state has different laws when it comes to tattooing. However, they all should have some sort of license and should have been inspected by the health department and most important there should be an autoclave on site that is sterilizing the tattooing equipment.

    There are a lot of risks and infections involved in tattooing so you have to make sure that you check out the sanitation and cleanliness of a tattoo studio first before you commit to them.

    Licenses should be checked. But there are situationa when even a licenesed tattoo artist doesn’t provide you with the necessary sanitary conditions. So, everything has to be xhecked by yourself.
