Before receiving a Tattoo Artist License, all tattoo and permanent makeup artists (including people who perform microblading, scalp pigmentation and microneedling) must successfully complete the New York City Health Department’s Infection Control Course for Tattoo and Permanent Makeup Artists.
Frequency and Duration: This class is three hours long. It is conducted twice a month.
Note : Applicants who register online or go to the Citywide Licensing center must submit an application for the Tattoo Artist License ($100) at the same time they register for the class, for a total cost of $126. Participants who complete this course and successfully pass the final written examination will have their Tattoo Artist License issued by the Citywide Licensing Center.
