A new bylaw (under consideration) in the New Plymouth District Council will impose new restrictions on tattoo and body piercing parlors that will require them to be licensed and maintain strict health standards vis-a-vis sterilization of equipment, general health and safety and also record keeping. The new law proposed is to prevent transmission of Hepatitis B and C. Read the whole story at:
The law has been welcomed by tattoo artists and body piercers alike who would want to break the unpleasant myths clouding their profession. Whether it’s getting inked or under the piercing gun, safety is primary!
Young people smart enough to be rebel or should also be smart enough to worry about their health! You have to remember that body modification is only valid as long as there is a body to modify.
Want body piercing? Get it the right way
Body Jewelry – Go for nickel free body jewelry only. Nickel causes allergies and may lead to infection.
Body Piercing Parlor – Go to a licensed piercing parlor. New Plymouth will have many licensed parlors now. But you can sure find one in your area because if not the law, the practice should be followed everywhere (at least)!
Body Piercing Professional – Is this still a mystery? Certified professional piercer only!!
And if you are a body jewelry/ piercing enthusiast then spread the word of law in your area too. So that body piercing law becomes as popular as body piercing.
