Tattoo Frontier: Washington DC

“If you’re a barber in the District, you have to be licensed and regulated by a city board. But if you’re a tattoo artist or piercer, a certain libertarian ethos seems to govern your trade within city limits—currently, the District remains one of the last places in the country in which tattooing and piercing are wholly unregulated.”


“Regulations on Horizon for D.C. Tattoo Artists,” Martin Austermuhle, DCist
