Stop the sale of tattoo equipment via online auction sites!
Petition Background (Preamble):
Since sites like eBay sellers started selling cheap tattooing kits, back yard tattooing has flourished, bringing a rise in substandard tattoos, scarring of individuals and the higher potential to spread diseases such as Hepatitis C, HIV, and other blood borne diseases and infections.
There is no limit to the age of the individual buying such equipment, and therefore teenagers are getting hold of this equipment and tattooing themselves and their friends, with no idea how to properly prepare skin for a tattoo nor how to actually operate the machines correctly in order to apply the tattoo.
The Stop the sale of tattoo equipment via online auction sites! petition to Federal Minister for Health, was written by Kieran Tyrrell and is in the category Health at GoPetition. Contact author here. Petition tags: tattoo, ebay, disease, hepatitis, hiv, professional, blood born pathagens
