State Health Board To Review Proposed Tattoo Regulations

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Proposed rules governing the practice of tattooing are scheduled to be reviewed today at a meeting of the Oklahoma Board of Health.

Among other things, tattoo and body-piercing establishments will have to be at least 1,000 feet from a church, school or playground as of November 1st.

All operators and artists at the establishments will have to be state licensed -- which includes taking courses in first aid, cardiopulmonary resuscitation and blood borne diseases.

Licensing fees for the businesses also are required -- including $1,000 for a tattoo parlor and $500 for a body-piercing establishment.

Each artist has a $250 state license fee.

In addition, each artist will have to take a standardized competency test, which will be administered at vocational technology centers statewide.

Tressa Madden of the Oklahoma Health Department says each establishment is scheduled for at least two inspections a year.
