  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-

  Section  1.  The  public health law is amended by adding a new section
460-a to read as follows:
  S 460-A. RESTRICTIONS ON BODY PIERCING STUDIOS.  1. NO OWNER, OPERATOR
OR EMPLOYEE OF A BODY PIERCING STUDIO SHALL PERMIT BODY  PIERCING  ON  A
PERSON  UNDER EIGHTEEN YEARS OF AGE UNLESS SUCH PERSON PROVIDES THE BODY
PIERCING STUDIO WITH THE WRITTEN CONSENT, IN A FORM  PRESCRIBED  BY  THE
COMMISSIONER,  OF  A  PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN TO USE SUCH BODY PIERCING
STUDIO. THE PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN SHALL SIGN SUCH CONSENT FORM IN THE
PRESENCE OF THE OWNER OF THE BODY PIERCING STUDIO  OR  A  BODY  PIERCING
SPECIALIST  OF  SUCH  STUDIO.  SUCH  ORIGINAL  WRITTEN  CONSENT SHALL BE
RETAINED BY THE BODY PIERCING STUDIO FOR A PERIOD OF TWELVE  MONTHS  AND
MAY  BE  RETAINED  OFF  PREMISES  PROVIDED  THAT  AN ELECTRONIC IMAGE OR
FACSIMILE OF THE ORIGINAL SIGNED CONSENT FORM IS  READILY  AVAILABLE  BY
THE OWNER OR EMPLOYEE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE OPERATION OF THE BODY PIERCING
STUDIO.
  2.  A WRITTEN CONSENT FORM SIGNED BY A PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN PURSU-
ANT TO SUBDIVISION ONE OF THIS SECTION SHALL EXPIRE TWELVE  MONTHS  FROM
THE  DATE IT IS SIGNED BY THE PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN. UPON THE EXPIRA-
TION OF A WRITTEN CONSENT FORM, A NEW WRITTEN CONSENT SHALL BE  PROVIDED
IN THE MANNER PRESCRIBED IN SUBDIVISION ONE OF THIS SECTION PRIOR TO THE
USE OF A BODY PIERCING STUDIO BY ANY PERSON UNDER EIGHTEEN YEARS OF AGE.
  3.  THIS  SECTION  SHALL  BE  EXCLUSIVE AND SHALL PREEMPT ANY CONTRARY
LOCAL LAW OR ORDINANCE, EXCEPT THAT THIS SECTION SHALL  NOT  PREEMPT  OR
SUPERSEDE   LOCAL   LAWS  OR  ORDINANCES  IMPOSING  ADDITIONAL  STRICTER
RESTRICTIONS ON THE OPERATION OF BODY  PIERCING  STUDIOS  WHICH  ARE  IN
EFFECT PRIOR TO THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF THIS SECTION.
