I am petitioning to add paramedical and cosmetic tattooing to the Medical Office zoning category in St Petersburg so plastic surgery offices and medical spas can offer these services to their patients. 

The way the codes are written now, all paramedical and cosmetic tattooing must be done in a tattoo parlor and it is not permitted for medical professionals to offer these services in their establishments. For example, a plastic surgery office cannot offer areola/nipple, or scar reconstruction to their patients unless specifically zoned as a tattoo parlor. 

Changing this code would give many patients and clients better access to these services and would save 12 small businesses in St Petersburg from shutting their doors and having to relocate.
