Per the Southern Nevada Health District Regulations Governing the Sanitation and Safety of Tattoo Establishments and the Regulations Governing the Sanitation and Safety of Body Piercing Establishments, applicants must have a minimum of six months continuous training in a duly-licensed establishment in Nevada, another state or country before they can receive a permanent Body Art Card.
Applicants who do not meet this requirement must serve an apprenticeship for a minimum of six months in a health permitted establishment. All health permit holders have been provided with the procedures for apprentices who will be working in their establishments.
Apprentices must have a Body Art Apprentice Card before they can begin their apprenticeship.
The requirements for a Body Art Apprentice Card are similar to a Body Art Card, except the apprentice will need to provide the following additional information.
Note: Body Art Cards will not be issued without written documentation from the health permitted establishment where applicant will be operating.
