Final Permitting Inspections – Body Art Facilities

A final permitting inspection of your facility must be scheduled prior to beginning any operations (except on change-of-ownership inspections). Although this is not a complete list of requirements*, completion of the items on this checklist will help you pass your final inspection.

  1. Someone knowledgeable about the operation must be present.
  2. Is the completed Building Inspection card or Certificate of Occupancy available? (Required for new construction or remodels requiring building permits.)
  3. Is there adequate hot water at all hand sinks, including restrooms?
  4. Is the facility ready for customers? Do you have a current spore test (if required), approved disinfectant, adequate gloves and adequate sharps containers?
  5. Are all hand sinks stocked with paper towels and hand soap?
  6. Are the work surfaces smooth, easily cleanable and non-absorbent?
  7. Are all sterile packages dated and not expired?
  8. Do doors close tightly to deter pests?
  9. Do the artists have valid SNHD Body Art Cards?
  10. Are required forms available and approved by SNHD?
    1. Written patron consent form
    2. Aftercare instructions
    3. Written infection control plan including aseptic procedures for the protection of patrons and general establishment cleaning and disinfection procedures
  11. Is there adequate lighting in procedure and equipment cleaning/sterilization areas?

Failure to meet these basic requirements can result in failure at your final inspection and assessment of associated fees. Please contact your Plan Review inspector at (702) 759-1258 if you have any questions before your scheduled appointment.
