The Southern Nevada Health District Environmental Health Division regulates, permits and inspects all body art establishments. Body art is defined as tattoo, permanent makeup, and body piercing.

Recently tattoos have become mainstream and are viewed by enthusiasts as expressive forms of body art. From eagles inked onto biceps to perfectly arched ‘permanent’ eyebrows, tattooing has become big business in Clark County.

Now there are more than 1600 permitted tattoo, permanent makeup, and piercing artists permitted by the Southern Nevada Health District.
