Tattoos are permanent. And tattoo parlors may soon need to keep long-lasting proof that young people gave them identification showing they were adults to obtain body art or piercings.
The House voted 68-1 Tuesday to pass HB117, and sent it to the Senate. It requires parlors to keep photocopies on file of identification that someone used to show they were old enough to obtain a tattoo without permission of a parent.
Its sponsor, Rep. Jon Stanard, R-St. George, said a constituent reported that a 15-year-old child recently obtained a tattoo without parental consent.
