Body piercing

The Environmental Health Unit aims to ensure that the practices of any body piercing business, e.g. tattooing, body piercing, electrolysis, etc. are carried out in a clean and hygienic manner.   

All such businesses/persons are required to be registered with the Department. Registration is subject to routine inspections. All registered persons are issued with a certificate, which must be displayed on the premises. An application form can be found at the side of this page.

The Island has specific legislation relating to acupuncture, tattooing and body piercing, copies of which can be found at the side of this page. In addition, all operators should be familiar with and able to demonstrate that they are following guidance from the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health.
