A state senate committee’s given its blessing to a measure requiring a parent’s permission before a minor can get his or her body pierced. Senator Neal Schuerer of Amana managed the bill in committee. He says tattooing is regulated and body piercing should be regulated in the same way.The concern of a legitimate business person, he says, is getting objections afterward from a customer’s parents. Schuerer says it’s a law requested by a constituent, to clarify what the obligations and requirements are for providing a client service. A law will make it clear to a minor that parental permission’s required to get something pierced. A fee for the piercers’ business permit was the one detail that halted similar legislation last year.
