Body Art

The principal focus of regulating the practice of body art, tattooing, body piercing, branding, and permanent cosmetics is to protect the health, safety and welfare of the people of the State of New Hampshire.

The Executive Director of the Office of Professional Licensure and Certification establishes standards of practice and promulgates rules to regulate Body Art Practitioners. Public hearings, disciplinary hearings, informal conferences and meetings are held as necessary. Licensees are disciplined and administrative fines are issued for licensure violations.
