Application Process for Establishments

All body art establishments must be inspected prior to licensure. Department staff conduct a comprehensive inspection of the physical space and review the establishment’s operating and safety procedures. The inspection ensures that all body art activities conducted in the establishment comply with regulations, and will not negatively impact the public health of the community.
Inspections are conducted every six months, or when changing conditions warrant one.

Establishment license renewals are due each year by May 31. You can prepare for renewal by completing the Self-Audit Form.
