Tattooing, piercing and electrolysis licences

If you want to carry out tattooing or skin treatments in the district, you must be registered with us. This includes:

  • tattooing and semi-permanent skin colouring
  • cosmetic skin piercing
  • acupuncture
  • electrolysis

We'll inspect your business to make sure health and safety standards are met before issuing a licence.

The licence will remain in force until either the business ceases to exist or registration is cancelled.
