Skin piercing, tattoo, electrolysis and acupuncture registration

If you offer tattooing, semi-permanent skin colouring, cosmetic piercing, electrolysis or acupuncture you must be registered with us.

Once registered you will be issued with a certificate of registration. If you work from premises, they must also be registered.

How to apply

The fee is £100.00. To apply please complete the online application form.

When we receive your application, an officer from our Public Safety team will visit you at your premises.

You may find it helpful to invite the officer to your premises at an early stage. You’ll have a chance to show them what you are planning. That way, you can avoid last minute alterations or additions and keep within budget.
