Section 902 KAR 45:070, 10, p(2),
Rule (f) “Only” hollow needles are to be used for piercing prohibits
the currently used solid piercing needle, also prohibits the use of
"stepped-down" externally threaded
piercing jewelry, also eliminates the internally threaded needle
which requires externally threaded 14G and 16 jewelry.
These three were designed
to simplify and enhance safety of the piercer and the client, proven
in use for 20 years.
We ask KDPH to eliminate these rules.
