What is body Art?
Hours of Operation
Monday-Friday 8 AM to 5 PM
- 831-796-8693 or 831-755-4880
Body art practices include tattooing, body, piercing, branding, and application of permanent cosmetics.
Who needs a permit?
A facility where body art services will be performed requires a permit from the Monterey County Health Department. Anyone who provides a body art services and meets the minimum standard to become a registered practitioner must also be registered.
Safe Body Art Act
California’s Safe Body Art Act, revised January 1, 2014, provides minimum standards for persons and businesses engaged in performance of tattooing, body piercing, branding and the application of permanent cosmetics in California. These requirements are intended to protect both the practitioner and the client from transmission of infectious diseases through the application of proper body art procedures and the control of cross-contamination of instruments and supplies.
The local enforcement agency (LEA) enforces California’s Safe Body Art Act with a registration and inspection program for both body art operators and body art facilities. This program ensures that state minimum standards are met prior to operators and facilities providing services to the public within Monterey County. A required annual inspection also ensures continued compliance.
