COVID-19 & Body Art

The State of Colorado has issued special guidance for prevention of COVID-19 for people accessing personal services, such as body art.

Body Art Regulations


Boulder County Public Health (BCPH) licenses and routinely inspects all body art facilities operating within the county. “Body art” facilities include any that provide tattoo, piercing, or permanent makeup services.


BCPH strongly recommends that people not receive tattoos, body piercings, or permanent makeup services from any person or business that is not licensed and inspected. Ask if a business is licensed, and be skeptical of advertising for body art from people who can travel to your house, or who offer to have you come to their house. Find out if the business is licensed by checking our list of Body Art Facility Inspection Records Search in Boulder County.
