Tattooing, Permanent Cosmetics, Piercing and Branding

The Safe Body Art Act regulates tattooing, permanent cosmetics, branding, and piercing. This law requires all body art practitioners to annually register with the County and work from an approved and inspected facility. Temporary body art events and mechanical ear piercing businesses are also regulated by the Safe Body Art Act.
