An Act To Require Tattoo Practitioners To Be at Least 18 Years of Age
Sec. 1. 32 MRSA §4252, as amended by PL 2013, c. 264, §15, is further amended to read:
§ 4252. Issuance of licenses
The Department of Health and Human Services may license persons 18 years of age or older to practice the art of tattooing. Such licenses are issued for a term of one year and may be renewed annually. The fee for an initial license or a renewal license may not exceed $250 for a resident of the State and $1,000 for a person not a resident of the State. All fees collected by the department pursuant to this section must be deposited in a special revenue account dedicated to a health inspection program.
Sec. 2. 32 MRSA §4302 is enacted to read:
§ 4302. Eligibility
To be eligible for a license under this chapter, a person must be 18 years of age or older.
This bill requires a tattoo practitioner to be at least 18 years of age. It also changes the maximum licensing fee for persons who are not residents of the State.
