Petitioning Rhode Island Department of Health

stop the sale of tattoo equipment to the public/enforce illegal tattooing


with the sale of tattoo equipment to unlicensed,untrained individuals creates a health risk of the spread of hepatitis infection,scarring and a long list of diseases.There also needs to be enforcement of those who perform this practice without proper training/licensing.with little resources for the dept of health to combat such a problem they must appoint a individual to over see such enforcement or such laws will be nothing more then a piece of paper.It is the responsibility of Rhode Island Department of Health to protect the states general public from such illegal activity before they have a serious health issue,which will make the professionals doing it correctly look bad.
