TATTOOING AND PIERCING PROGRAM
AB 300, Safe Body Art Act, establishes requirements for certain businesses involved in tattooing, branding, body piercing, and permanent cosmetics. The bill required practitioners of tattooing, branding, body piercing, and permanent cosmetics to register with the county in which they practice. It also required them to comply with the standards, provide the county health department with certain business specific
information, and pay a registration fee of $25.00 as well as an annual inspection fee of $300.00 to the county health department.
The county health department is required to annually inspect the locations where tattooing, body piercing, and permanent cosmetics are practiced in order to verify that the required standards are being adhered to.
