The California Safe Body Art Act is an excerpt from the California Health and Safety Code that provides minimum statewide standards for the regulation of persons engaged in the business or performance of body art.
When a facility meets the minimum requirements during a routine inspection, they will receive a “Pass” placard.
If they do not meet the minimum requirements, they will receive a “Re-inspection” placard.
These requirements are intended to protect both the body art practitioner and the client from transmission of infectious diseases through the application of proper body art procedures and the control of cross-contamination of instruments and supplies. Failure to meet minimum requirements can lead to the transmission of infectious diseases, or cross-contamination of instruments and supplies.
