KS Committee Criticizes New Rules for Tattoo Parlors

Tattoo Flickr photo by SoulRider.222-520(Flickr Photo by SoulRider.222)A Kansas legislative committee today (MON) criticized proposed changes to state regulations on tattooing and piercing. The proposals were brought by the Board of Cosmetology, which has oversight of those procedures. The proposals include changes to the training requirements for body artists, and would allow mobile body art facilities to operate in the state. Senator Vicki Schmidt is a Republican from Topeka. After around two hours of discussion, she said the changes are too complex.


Changes to state rules and regulations can be made through a public hearing process without being approved by the Legislature. But Schmidt said the proposed tattooing and piercing regulation changes are significant enough that they should be considered by lawmakers.
