Tattoo Parlor Inspections
The Tattoo Studio Certification and Tattoo Artist Registration Program began in April 1993.

All tattoo studios are required to be certified and all tattoo artists are required to be registered with the health department.

Tattoo studios are inspected twice a year, with emphasis placed on sterilization equipment and techniques, personal hygiene, and proper disposal of waste generated during the tattooing process.
