Body Art Operators & Technicians
The Southern Nevada Health District Environmental Health Division regulates, permits and inspects all body art establishments. Body art is defined as tattoo, permanent makeup, and body piercing.
Recently tattoos have become mainstream and are viewed by enthusiasts as expressive forms of body art. From eagles inked onto biceps to perfectly arched 'permanent' eyebrows, tattooing has become big business in Clark County.
In 1995 there were only 12 shops inking or providing permanent makeup to clients. Now there are more than 180 shops that provide a combination of tattoo, permanent makeup and body piercing services.
