Body Art

The Rules and Regulations Governing Body Art in Colorado address general sanitation and disease control and apply to every body artist in Colorado offering services such as tattooing, branding, sculpting, scarification and body piercings. 

Tattooing and piercing can present a health risk since artists can come in contact with their client's blood. The regulations provide guidance to 
help protect the health and safety of the artist and the client, in addition to ensuring the body art, the environment it's applied in and the equipment it's applied with meet the safest and most sanitary procedures possible. 

Body art facilities that are licensed by NCHD are inspected at least once a year. Due to the health risks associated with exposure to bloodborne pathogens, such as hepatitis or HIV, we do not recommend utilizing unlicensed body art facilities.
