Arizona Licensing Overview for a Tattoo Artist

Licensing for a tattoo artist in Arizona is controlled by the Arizona State Board of Cosmetology.

General Guidelines for a Tattoo Artist in Arizona

Specific state requirements to perform tattoo artist services can generally be used as a guideline, but with body art services, many of the licensing regulations are determined by local laws. Tattoo artists, microblading and other permanent cosmetic services become public health and safety concerns, which can be regulated by both the state and county. For example, some states may have a Safe Body Art Act to maintain standards, but then each county has different fees and qualifications to prove training and experience.
