A premises where any of the above functions are carried out must be registered. Once registered, a certificate of registration will be issued. Registration will include the names of the the people working at the premises so it is important that we are notified of any changes.

Tattoo advice

It is against the law to tattoo a person under the age of 18 even with parental consent.

It is also against the law for any tattoo artist or business to operate in the borough without first being registered with the council.

Have you had a tattoo by an unregistered tattooist?

A registered tattooist knows what to do to avoid spreading infection, but if you have ever had a tattoo done by a friend, or an unregistered tattooist, you might have picked up a potentially serious infection.

Unregistered tattooists, or Scratchers, have not been licensed or inspected by the Local Authority and often have poor cleaning standards and poor infection controls. Anyone who has had a tattoo from unregistered tattooists could be at risk of a number of blood borne infections. Infections like hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV often have no symptoms until they have been present for many years, but can be treated if they are picked up early.

If you think you might be at risk you can go to a sexual health clinic or to your GP to talk about getting a blood test.

More information about these infections is available from:

To discuss testing contact iCaSH Peterborough or visit your GP.

If you have concerns about a possible unregistered tattooist please contact customer services or email
