If you intend to operate a body art tattooing business (whether on your own behalf or on behalf of another person) you will require this licence. If you intend to operate multiple tattoo businesses in different locations you will need a separate licence for each location.
Only an individual can apply for this licence. If the application is in connection with a business that is owned, or operated by, or on behalf of a corporation, partnership or trust, the application must be made by an individual nominated by the corporation, partners or trustees, to be the manager at the business premises.
Please be aware that it is an offence to employ a person as a body art tattooist if they do not hold a current Tattooist Licence.
To apply, complete the Application for an Operator Licence form.
Other forms and related documents are available on the Fair Trading website.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
