Petitioning The State Of Michigan

Stop the public sales of tattooing and body piercing equipment.

In the state of Michigan anyone can purchase tattooing or body piercing equipment with absolutely no proof that they are employed by a licensed studio or have taken the required classes for Blood borne pathogens.
Every year thousands of people are permanently disfigured and stand the chance of contracting very serious diseases like Hep B, Hep C and HIV. All at the hands of uninformed and untrained public.
It is illegal to tattoo or pierced outside of a licensed studio in the state of Michigan, so why would it be legal to sell to the general public?
We would like to see the state of Michigan make it law that all tattoo and body piercing equipment sales be made only to licensed artist/studios.
This is a great way to slow the spread of dangerous diseases and the disfigurement of unsuspecting citizens of the state.
