24 hour waiting period before getting a tattoo

Should you have to wait 24 hours to get a tattoo? That’s the question being raised by health regulators in Washington, DC. Officials are considering a mandatory 24 hour waiting period before getting a tattoo or body piercing in our nations capitol.

The owner or licensee of tattoo shops located in Washington, DC will have to ensure that no tattoos or piercings will be performed until a mandatory twenty-four hour waiting period has passed since the customer initiated contact with the establishment if the proposed regulation becomes law.


If passed, say goodbye to the days of walking into a tattoo shop and walking out with a tattoo or body piercing.


Such regulation could be detrimental because tattooists rely heavily on walk-in business. Tattoo shops receive 40-70% of their revenue from walk-in customers that want that spontaneous tattoo or piercing. Furthermore, tattoo expos would be a thing of the past if this becomes law.

Officials are citing health risks and buyers remorse as the  basis for the proposed regulation. They believe this will prevent people from making a bad impulse decision and allow them 24 hours to think it over.

Most tattoo professionals won't tattoo any individual that is underage, intoxicated or indicates that they're not committed to the tattoo.

Do we need the government protecting us from getting a tattoo or piercing that we may regret?

Share your thoughts.

President Obama Threatens To Get A Tattoo

In an interview with NBC Today, Obama discusses his daughters getting tattooed. This is what Obama said when asked about his strategy to keep his daughters from getting tattoos. "Although Michelle and I have used the strategy when it comes to things like tattoos. What we've said to the girls is if you guys ever decide you're gonna get a tattoo, then mommy and me will get the exact same tattoo in the same place and we'll go on YouTube and show it off as a family tattoo and our thinking is that might dissuade them from thinking that somehow that's a good way to rebel."

Do you think President Obama has any tattoos? If so, what do you think they're of?

How Are Tattoo Inks Made


Primitive tattoo inks were mainly black and were made from burned animal bone and burned plant material. For colorful pigments, some flowers and other colorful elements such as metal oxides were used. In prison, it is common to use carbon from burning available items such as plastic or food items.
Modern tattoo inks are made by suspending a pigment in a carrier. Many types of pigments are used to manufacture tattoo inks. The three most common are: ORGANIC: Derived from plants or animals. INORGANIC: Derived from metallic oxides that occur naturally or synthetically. SYNTHETIC ORGANIC: Made from petroleum and polymer compounds.
The ingredients in modern tattoo ink vary by manufacturer and are considered proprietary. The pigments are suspended in a carrier that's purpose is to carry the pigment into the dermis. Carriers are commonly made from distilled water, witch hazel, alcohol and sometimes propylene glycol. The alcohol serves as both carrier and disinfectant to prevent the growth of bacteria.

Can tattoo ink cause a bad reaction to the skin?
All ingredients in tattoo ink can result in allergic reactions depending on an individuals allergy or tolerance to the compounds. However, most adverse reactions during or after a tattoo are more commonly caused by bacterial infections.

The best tattoo inks can be found on our website (www.needlesupply.com)
