NekoBot's Strange News #1 - Iowa school

I used to do these for a course I dont have anymore. Enjoy these weekly posts :3
 
Like most states with active trade associations of barbers and beauticians, Iowa strictly regulates those professions, requiring 2,100 hours of training plus continuing education -- but also like many other states, Iowa does not regulate body piercers at all (though it forbids minors from getting tattoos). Thus, the puncturing of body parts and insertion of jewelry or other objects under the skin can be done by anyone, with or without formal training, under no one's watchful eye except the customer's. (A few cities' ordinances require a minimum age to get pierced.) Said one professional piercer to the Des Moines Register for a March report, "The lack of education in this industry is scary."

That is quite worrying, especially with a profession that makes you handle sharp object and breaking the continuity of a persons skin. I would require someone to have had training of some sort before I let them anywhere near me with piercing utensils.
