Skin Piercing Registration

Under the provisions of the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1982, registration is required to undertake the practice of ear-piercing, skin piercing, electrolysis, acupuncture, micro-blading and tattooing, (including semi-permanent skin colouring) or to carry out such a business.

It is an offence to operate as any of the above without a valid registration or, in non-compliance with any byelaws attached to any registration issued.

Premises will always be inspected before a registration certificate is issued and inspections to assess compliance with the bye-laws may be made at any time once registration has been issued.

If you are thinking of setting up a business involving any of the above procedures, you should discuss your proposals with one of our officers (see contact details below), before incurring any expenditure.

Erection of additional facilities, or, changing the use of existing premises may require prior approval under Town and Country Planning Acts and/or Building Regulations.
