Body Art, Tattoos and Piercings

Rules and Regulations for Body Art establishments became part of the Weld County Code Ordinance on October 14, 2002.  This ordinance, section 14 of the Weld County Code, contains the regulations for licensing and inspecting Body Art Establishments in Weld County.  The ordinance is based on the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment's Rules and Regulations Governing Body Art in the State of Colorado.

The complete Rules and Regulations for Body Art Establishments can be viewed at:  Weld County Code Chapter 14 Article 5.

In January of 2003, the Environmental Health Services division instituted annual licensing and inspections of all tattoo and body piercing facilities, including permanent makeup studios.  This does not include practices conducted under the supervision of a physician licensed to practice medicine under Colorado law. Inspections are performed annually with follow-up inspections conducted on an as-needed basis.   Investigations are also conducted in response to complaints, reports of suspected disease, construction and remodel activities, fire, etc.

License and Inspections

The purpose of the Rules and Regulations is to ensure safe and sanitary practice, physical environment and equipment, and proper record keeping. If you operate an existing establishment, you can prepare for an inspection by completing the Body Art Self Inspection form.

If you are interested in opening a new or remodeling an existing establishment, complete the Body Art Application Packet and return it to the Environmental Health Services division.
