Skin piercing and treatments

Join the tattoo hygiene rating scheme

If you're a registered tattooist or semi-permanent makeup practitioner you can sign up to our voluntary tattoo hygiene rating scheme.

We'll inspect your premises each year and give you a hygiene rating between one (below minimum standards) and four (very good).

You'll be given a certificate and window sticker to display your rating for customers. We'll also publish ratings online and on social media to promote your business.
