Board of Health Proposed Body Art Regulations

The Board will consider Adopting Regulations for Body Art Establishments and Practitioners - November 14, at 5:30 PM

A Public Hearing was held by the Gill Board of Health at the Town Hall, 325 Main Rd. Gill MA, on October 10, 2023 at 5:30 PM to consider adopting “Regulations for Body Art Establishments and Practitioners.” The Board of Health anticipates adopting these regulations at its next meeting on November 14, 2023 at 5:30 PM.


Among its provisions the regulations, if adopted, establish sanitation and sterilization requirements for Body Art Establishments and minimum health standards to which Body Art Practitioners must comply. Eighteen (18) is proposed as the minimum age to receive a Tattoo, and Mobile Body Art Establishments would be prohibited. The regulations require Body Art Establishments and Practitioners to be permitted annually by Board of Health and also provide for twice yearly compliance inspections of Body Art Establishments and penalties for violating the regulations. The proposed regulations are available for inspection on the Town’s website (click on file link to open: V3-0_Town_of_Gill_Body_Art_Regulations_considered_for_adoption.pdf) and at the Town Hall offices during business hours.
