Acupuncture, Tattooing, Semi-Permanent Skin-Colouring, Cosmetic Piercing And Electrolysis

February 14, 2013

The latest procedure to be added to the Licensing module covers the registration of premises and individuals for the carrying out of acupuncture, tattooing, semi-permanent skin-colouring, cosmetic piercing and electrolysis. Local Authorities may adopt provisions that require registration and the making of byelaws. Licensing powers are available in London.

The procedure is located in the ‘tattooing and piercing’ sub-category and is supported by guidance and a set of model byelaws in the National Policy and Guidance section.
