If you plan to open a body art facility or perform body art activities, you will need to register with the County of Main Environmental Health Services.
Body Art includes piercing, tattoos, permanent cosmetics, and branding. Body art must be performed in a safe and sanitary manner to prevent the potential for spreading blood-borne diseases and other infections. The Marin County Body Art program promotes and protects the health and safety of body art practitioners, their clients and the public by overseeing practices to ensure they are in compliance with the law.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Body Art Program at 415-473-6907 or EHSBodyArt@marincounty.org.
