Tattooing, Body Piercing & Permanent Cosmetics
Recent state legislation requires all practitioners of "body arts", including tattooing, body piercing, and application of permanent cosmetics, to register with the local health department. Registration requirements for operators at this time include review of proposed regulations, completion of an application form, and payment of a $39.00 registration fee.
State laws establishing minimum requirements for body art are provided in the California Safe Body Art Act (Act) which was enacted to provide minimum statewide standards for the regulation of persons engaged in the business of body art in California. Body art includes tattoo, body piercing, branding, and the application of permanent cosmetics. The requirements are intended to protect both the practitioner and the client from transmission of infectious diseases. Inspections will occur at all body art facilities within the County of Orange. The Act resides in the California Health and Safety Code (H&SC), Division 104, Part 15, Sections (§§) 119300-119328. AB 300 repeals current provisions and enacts the Safe Body Art Act as of July 1, 2012.
