Council Considering Changes In Tattoo, Body Piercing Ordinance

The Lubbock City Council considered updating the city's tattoo and body piercing ordinance Tuesday.

Changes would include banning tongue-splitting and surgical body modification and require six hours of training on blood-borne pathogens and infection control. The new ordinance would also lower the age at which a person can get a tattoo or body piercing without parental approval from 21 to 18.

Another change would outlaw temporary tattoo and body piercing locations. City council must pass the changes one more time before they go into effect.
