Ever wonder why there are no tattoo shops in Exeter? Here’s why

Tattoo artist Thomas Gustainis, owner of Red House Irons in Fitchburg, Massachusetts, wants to open a shop in downtown Exeter but can't due to a town ban on tattooing.

EXETER – Tattoo artist Thomas Gustainis said he had hoped to join the growing arts scene in Exeter, noting a body art establishment would’ve “made for a good match” with the music and visual arts community. 

One problem. Gustainis said soon after inquiring about opening a potential shop on Water Street he found out Exeter bans tattoo and body piercing shops by ordinance in town, unless performed by a licensed doctor.

Gustainis, owner of the tattoo studio Red House Irons in Fitchburg, Massachusetts, has been a professional tattoo artist for seven years but has been tattooing for much longer. He said he and his team have spent the last several months looking to possibly relocate to New Hampshire and he had scouted several locations including Portsmouth, with several tattoo shops, and Hampton.

“Exeter was one of our first picks, and if there is an appetite for the (Select) Board to make an executive decision, then I’m still interested,” Gustainis said. “The ordinance doesn’t outright ban (tattooing), but if I’m required to have a physician’s license, there might as well be a ban on shops.”

The history of Exeter's tattoo ban

The town’s ban on tattoo and body piercing establishments dates back to a 1998 Town Meeting vote where voters approved banning tattooing with the exception of medical professionals.

In 2012, the town's Select Board officially approved an ordinance based on the Town Meeting vote from 14 years earlier.

Health Officer James Murray said based on his research, the primary reason voters approved the ban in 1998 was mostly attributed to concerns about the sanitation quality of shops and the potential for the spread of blood-borne pathogens such as HIV/AIDS and hepatitis, as were the concerns in news articles he read as part of his research. 

What are tattoo shop rules in other NH communities?

Murray said since Exeter’s ban went into effect and the state began licensing tattoo and body piercing establishments, “self-inspecting” municipalities, such as Manchester, Salem and Concord are able to conduct public health inspections of tattoo shops to ensure they adhere to sanitary practices. He said of the larger Seacoast communities, none had similar ordinances banning tattoo or body piercing establishments. 

Thomas Gustainis, a tattoo artist who was eyeing a location in downtown Exeter to move his studio but was prevented from doing so because the town has an ordinance prohibiting tattoo and body piercing establishments.

“Today, tattoo shops make for less of a public health concern than they are a potential private health concern,” Murray said. “If a business was engaging in unsanitary practices, I don’t think there’s anything that would affect a larger population from a public health perspective. And you would say the same thing for any other type of business, like restaurants and dental offices, if they used unsanitary practices.”

Gustainis noted Hampton also has an ordinance against tattoo shops but not body piercing. He said the history and the conversation about blood-borne pathogens is a “very real” and an important one to put into historical context.

“Those days are not to be forgotten or minimalized or trivialized, but (today) tattoo shops are very transparent with what we do,” Gustainis said. “We’re held to the same (sanitation) standards as medical and dental facilities, and we welcome that regulatory oversight. It’s for our own safety, too.”

Exeter's future: tattoos or still taboo?

Selectwoman Julie Gilman was a member of the board in 2012, but said she could not recall why it took more than a decade to codify the 1998 Town Meeting vote banning tattoo parlors into an ordinance. Select Board minutes from 2012, do not offer much debate or reasoning from then-board members for approving the ban.

“I don’t recall anything being controversial for the decision,” Gilman said. “For the board, it was more of a formality.”

During the Feb. 22 meeting, Select Board members discussed the tattoo ordinance and there was general consensus to support repealing the ordinance, given changes in public attitudes about tattoos and body piercings over the last two decades.

However, there is a debate on whether the board has the authority to just repeal it, or if it needs to go back before voters.

“My assumption is the ordinance was put into place for medical like a lot of towns did back then because of a high propensity for the transmission of blood-borne pathogens,” said Selectwoman Lovey Roundtree Oliff. “What happens next is based on our ability to act before the next election. If (repealing the ordinance) is something that ends up in our laps beforehand, it’s something I see myself supporting at this level.”

Selectwoman Molly Cowan and a majority of board members said she did not believe the board had the legal authority to overturn the ordinance on their own. She said she supports repealing the ban when the town can procedurally do so. 

"This ordinance seems discriminatory, but it was passed by the voters, which limits the action we can take now," Cowan said. "As a good government practice, boards should be reviewing what's on the books for things that may or may not have made sense at one time. This ordinance was passed in a different time and is one that certainly doesn't make sense today." 

Selectman Daryl Browne sided with Cowan and said the board taking up the action before next year's warrant would be an "overstep of the board's charge" in his view. 

"It would be one thing if the board decided here are a bunch of regulations we think are in need of updating, but we can't cherry-pick because someone wanted to move into town," Browne said. "This really needs to go before the legislative body who can decide to amend it, repeal it or leave it as is."

As for Gustainis, he said he is willing to engage with the board to discuss solutions and help ease any lingering concerns among residents of the sanitation practices of modern tattoo establishments. He said he has no firm timetable of when he would like to move from his current location.

“Any kind of body modification is no longer such a social taboo,” Gustainis said. “Tattoos are a great form of personal expression to share with others and be part of a community. I’m more interested in being a part of the contemporary discourse rather than the phobias of the past.”
