Tattoo licensing OK’d

Tattoo artists would be required to hold a state license, and get proper training, senators tentatively decided Tuesday.

A similar bill faces a House committee hearing later this week.

Sen. Yvonne Prettner Solon, DFL-Duluth, said a training and licensing law is to ensure tattoos are safe, which would allow people who obtain tattoos to donate blood. Now, blood centers reject people with tattoos less than a year old, Prettner Solon said.

The measure passed out of committees last year, but did not make it into law
