Body Art Program

Butte County Environmental Health's (BCEH) Body Art Program is responsible for enforcing the California Safe Body Art Act in order to protect both body art practitioners and clients from the transmission of infectious diseases. Facilities that perform body art such as tattooing, permanent cosmetics, body piercing, and branding are permitted and inspected by Environmental Health Specialists. In addition to permitting body art facilities, BCEH also registers all body art practitioners.
