Regulating Tattoos In KY

The Department of Public Health is proposing new regulations this month regarding tattoos. A lot of those proposed regulations focus on keeping Kentucky’s tattoo shops clean, but one of the regulations has some shop workers unhappy.”This is the only way for these people to move forward with their lives,” said Draven Gayheart with Lost Gypsy Tattoo. “Camouflage that constant reminder of what they’ve gone through.”What Gayheart is referring to is the process of covering up scars with tattoos. In the newly proposed regulations, getting scars covered is not allowed.
