In July, California's tattoo parlor-policing Safe Body Art Act goes into effect and County Supe Zev Yaroslavsky's website looks at LA County's "tiny Body Art Unit": the head of the environmental hygiene program laments that with the new enforcement responsibilities "Who knows what we’re going to run into in the cities? Some of those parlors in Hollywood are the size of postage stamps. Then there’s Venice?" The County has actually been regulating this stuff in unincorporated areas since 1999, but until now, the city of LA "had little, if any regulation beyond business licenses and zoning restrictions."
