238-A or as otherwise designated by the Selectmen:

Body Piercing Town of SesJsrook, NH
Article I .
Authority and Interpretation of Terms
Section- 1 Findings

A. This chapter has been enacted pursuant to the authority
granted the Town by NH RSA 147:1 and NH RSA 31:39m,
effective July 1, 1989. Effective Date, October 14, 1989
and confirmed by RSA 314-A, effective July 1, 1994.

B. The purpose of this ordinance is to protect the safety,
health, and welfare of the general public and not to
protect the personal or property interests of individuals.
Nothing in this ordinance shall be deemed to be the making
of a promise, or the undertaking of a special duty towards
or relationship with any person who is body pierced; nor
shall the provision of, or failure to provide such
licenses or to undertake particular inspections or types
of inspections be deemed to create a special relationship
or duty towards any person upon which any action in
negligence or other tort might be founded.

C. This Ordinance is based on the following legislative
findings :

1. There is a risk of harm to the public from the practice
of body piercing. The risk arises from the
characteristics of this practice, the characteristics
of clients served, and the characteristics of the work
place environment and supervisory practices.

2. Body piercing is an invasive procedure in which the
skin is penetrated by a foreign object. If body
piercers do not follow proper sterilization and
antiseptic procedures, there is a risk of transmission
of blood borne or other infections.

3. Body piercing may cause allergic reactions in persons
sensitive to dyes or metals used in ornamentation.

4. The public can be protected from this risk by requiring
the use of universal precautions related to the
transmission of blood borne infections and by
disclosure requirements to facilitate informed choice.

D. When, and if, the State of New Hampshire adopts



19



regulations relative to body piercing, this shall be read
in concert with them. To the extent that these regulations
conflict with those adopted by the State of New Hampshire,
the more stringent regulations shall apply.
