Tattoo and body piercing poses high health risk when performed by unlicensed individuals practicing outside of a licensed shop. Ending the sale of equipment to these individuals would help to slow this dangerous practice. Also ending the access to this dangerous practice would return economic viability to the professionals in this industry. Laws are already in place making it against the law but lack a enforcing body. This would simplify enforcement.

      I am an artist in Omaha, Nebraska and see too many people with tattoos done out of a home. It's too big of a health risk (plus, they're ugly) and people are not informed enough on the dangers of home tattooing so we should nip the problem in the bud. Good for you for proposing this!

      This is important to me because I own a tattoo business and this is how I support my family. These leaches that work out of their homes need to be stopped, this is a career choice, not a game. Their are so many dangers that can occur with a unprofessional artist. Louisiana is trying to implement a charge of attempted murder for all unlicensed home artist....this would surely stop the idiots everywhere.
