Regulations – Body Art

The Regulations Governing the Sanitation of Tattoo & Permanent Makeup Establishments and the Regulations Governing the Sanitation of Body Piercing Establishments were amended on December 14, 2000.

Regulations include the following requirements:

  • A Health Permit is required to own or operate a tattoo, permanent makeup or body piercing establishment in Clark County.
  • Equipment and instruments used in the application of tattooing or body piercing must be sterilized and needles properly disposed of in biohazard containers.
  • The small plastic containers holding the colored ink must never be reused since tattoo ink has been linked to the spread of hepatitis.
