On November 1st, the city council in Tustin, CA unanimously voted in favor of body art regulations in their city.  There were  previously no body art regs there because body art simply wasn't allowed.  As a result of the Supreme court decision against Carson, CA, body art is now protected as free speech.  Tustin made the wise decision to lift their own ban and allow tattooing, piercing, and cosmetic tattooing.  As vice president of the APP, I had the opportunity to review the city's suggested regulations in advance of the vote and offer my opinion.  I'm proud to say my contributions were well received and Tustin now has reasonable guidelines for keeping body art safe in their city.
