Tattooing, piercing and electrolysis
Anyone carrying out the following skin-piercing activities, must be registered with Crawley Borough Council:
- Ear piercing
- Cosmetic piercing
- Semi-permanent skin colouring
The aim of registering skin-piercing activities is to protect members of the public from the transmission of blood borne viruses such as HIV, Hepatitis B and C and other infections.
You can apply for a licence at GOV UK. Both the person performing the treatment and the premises must be registered.
Email the Licensing Team if you have a complaint about a skin-piercing business or if you require more information.
