Tattoo & Body Piercing Network

An AFIG Tattoo & Body Piercing Forum

The increasing popularity of tattoos and body piercing has prompted some local tattoo businesses to call for better health regulations.

They want Arizona to enact legislation for the industry to keep their customers safe.

The state does not regulate the tattoo industry. Coconino and Pima counties, however, have comprehensive ordinances in place, said Will Humble, director of the Arizona Department of Health Services. Also, the city of Phoenix governs tattoo shops through its special-permit process.

The Arizona Tattoo and Body Piercing Association has tried unsuccessfully to get laws passed by the Arizona Legislature, said board member Thomas Preston, owner of Valley tattoo parlor Virtual Reality.
