DC Considers Instituting 24-Hour Wait Period For Tattoos, Piercings



I can’t say I regret any of my tattoos, exactly, but I’m not sure if I’d have ended up with all five of them if I’d had to wait 24 hours between deciding to get one and actually getting inked. Apparently the DC Department of Health thinks that’s a good thing; they want to make District residents wait a full day before getting tattooed or pierced. As Gawker points out, that’s a stricter regulation than some gun laws!
