Things could soon change in Luxembourg regarding tattoos and piercings. A vote will take place on Wednesday on the subject.
Bill 7000 will be voted on in the House of Representatives on Wednesday with the aim of providing a legal framework for activities such as tattooing and piercing.
More changes could come
if the bill is passed in the House of Commons on Wednesday. Among the most important:
The legal age for tattooing or piercing will be 16, between 16 and 18 years old, parental permission is required for tattooing or piercing,
"cutting" and "branding" acts will not be skull hoodie allowed against minors,
Tattoo artists-piercers will be required to follow hygiene and sanitation training for at least 21 hours.
Other regulations are also planned, such as banning tattoo artists and piercers from performing techniques such as "snake tongue" and grinding teeth into vampire fangs. If the bill is passed, these procedures will have to be performed by medical professionals.
only one practice will remain legal for minors, who can have their earlobes pierced without age restrictions.
The bill itself fills a legal void that exists in Luxembourg's legislation. If the dragon skull bill is passed, the people most affected will obviously be the professionals in the tattoo industry.
