Tattooing, piercing, electrolysis and acupuncture

Anyone carrying out skin piercing (tattooing, acupuncture, ear piercing, cosmetic piercing, semi-permanent skin colouring and electrolysis) must be registered with Buckinghamshire Council.

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.
