[IowaAPA] Tattoo Use Regulation?

Does anyone have regulations for tattoo use/service that are more expansive
than just tattoo parlor? We have a zoning inquiry for a cosmetic/makeup use
that may involve tattoo service (we are waiting for them to send us
additional info) but not likely in the classic or old style definition of
the term. Pella's zoning code regulates tattoo service use but is primarily
geared toward the classic tattoo parlor use and limits such use to the
industrial districts through special use permit.

You need to be prepared to defend in court how the use distinguishes itself from other personal services and its intensity warrants an industrial classification.
