All tattoo and permanent makeup artists (including people who perform microblading, scalp pigmentation and micro needling) must successfully complete the Health Academy’s Infection Control Course for Tattoo and Permanent Makeup Artists. The course is four hours and costs $26. A two-year license costs $110. When you pass the final exam you will be issued your tattoo artists license. Applicants must apply for the license and register for the class at the same time.
At this time, the course is only offered in a virtual classroom setting. The course and final exam will be offered via the WebEx application. You can apply for the license and register for the course in person at the the Department of Consumer and Worker Protection (all visits are by appointment only).
The course and exam are available in English only.
