Tattoo Studio to Pay $7,000 in Alleged HIV Discrimination Case


Jim Allen:

--- Quote ---A tattoo studio in San Jose must pay $7,000 to a prospective client who was refused service by one of its artists because of the client’s positive HIV status, according to a statement from the Department of Justice (DOJ). Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits businesses from refusing service to people with disabilities, including HIV.

The client filed a complaint with the Department of Justice about her experience at Luna Tattoo Studio, claiming she was discriminated against after she disclosed her HIV status to the artist she was scheduled to see.
