Skin piercing and treatment licence

If you want to carry out tattooing or skin treatments in the district you must have a licence. This includes:

  • tattooing and semi-permanent skin colouring
  • cosmetic skin piercing

We'll inspect your business to make sure health and safety standards are met before issuing a licence.
