Bali's Badung Regency Preparing Regulations to Control Hygiene and Health Practice at Local Tattoo Parlors

(1/27/2012) Following unconfirmed reports from Western Australian Health Officials of an HIV contamination traced to a Bali tattoo parlor, the Badung regency of Bali is drafting regulations to prevent the spread of blood-borne diseases via tattoo shops in southern Bali.

Vivanews reports that a Regent (Bupati) decree will soon be issued making the new regulations law for the entire regency which encompasses most of southern Bali.

The vice-regent of Badung, Ketut Sudikerta, confirmed the regulation is being drafted following following a study conducted by the Indonesia Ministry of Health and reports from Western Australian Health Officials.

The regulation will dictate hygiene practices that must be implemented by the numerous tattoo shops found along Kuta beach.
