Environmental Health Services is responsible for the regulation of body art establishments where tattoos, piercings, cosmetic tattoos, and microblading, are conducted.
All Fulton County body art establishment permit holders must have a valid permit, proof of residency (copy of lease, mortgage, or utility bill), and a current license from the Fulton County Board of Health in order to operate. Body art establishments are defined as, “any structure on a permanent foundation, holding a valid business license where body art is performed.”
Routine, unannounced inspections will occur to assure proper sanitation practices that minimize hazards from blood-borne pathogens.
