What we do
Mesa County Public Health (MCPH) inspects any facility that performs procedures including:
- body piercing
- permanent makeup
- Other procedures where the skin is broken
We use each facility’s plan review and opening inspection as a platform to ensure clean and safe procedures are performed in compliance with state and local regulations. MCPH investigates all complaints, any illness reports and provides technical expertise to body art professionals.
Each body art establishment receives a Certificate of Inspection. This certificate is a health inspection separate from the education and training certifications that your body artist should have. This certificate of inspection should be displayed in a conspicuous place.
Please note, some permanent makeup establishments are supervised by physicians and are not regulated by Mesa County Public Health.
Prospective business owners
To operate a body art establishment, including a Plan Review Application, get started by accessing the resources, and information on local, affordable hazardous waste collection.
