Skin piercing registration

You will need to register yourself and your business premises if you intend to carry out the following:

  • Tattooing
  • Cosmetic Piercing (including ear piercing)
  • Semi-permanent skin colouring (including semi-permanent make-up)
  • Acupuncture
  • Electrolysis

This is set out in the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1982.

Local byelaws regarding hygiene apply and so your premises will be inspected by one of our team.

Tacit consent does not apply as it is in the public interest that we process your application before it can be granted.

Thank you. You response is appreciated.
