Beauty Therapy, Tattooing and Piercing
The bylaw for beauty therapy, tattooing and piercing is in place to promote and protect public health.
This reduces the risk of injury and infection for both operators and customers. You can find all the information relating to operating these businesses in the Beauty Therapy Tattooing and Piercing Bylaw.
Beauty therapy, tattooing and piercing businesses need to have a licence to operate. The licence is non-transferrable to another person or another premises. Some exemptions apply. Please contact your Environmental Health Officer to see if these apply to you. In addition there is an associated Code of Practice which businesses must follow.
A person who fails to comply with this bylaw commits a breach of this bylaw and is liable to a penalty under the Local Government Act 2002 and/or the Health Act 1956.
