Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council has now launched its new Tattoo & Piercing Hygiene Rating Scheme. The scheme aims to raise hygiene standards in the Dudley Borough and help ensure members of the public are well informed when deciding which studio/business to use.
A list of premises that have already been rated under the scheme can be found at the bottom of the page.
The scheme is a voluntary scheme and is open to all businesses in the Borough offering tattooing, semi-permanent skin colouring (including microblading) and cosmetic piercing. Following an inspection your premises will be given a hygiene rating between 1 (major improvement required) and 5 (excellent) under the scheme. You will receive a certificate and window sticker to display on your premises and your rating will be featured on this website.
The scoring for the scheme is based on the CIEH (Chartered Institute of Environmental Health) toolkit for tattooing and piercing. The toolkit is free to download:
The inspection will follow the format of the audit document located at the end of the toolkit.
An application form to join the scheme and the rules of the scheme are available on the links below. Forms need to be completed and returned to:
Environmental Safety and Health team,
Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council,
3-5 St James Road,
or emailed to EnvSafetyHealth.Due@dudley.gov.uk
Please note: You will need to apply each year to maintain subscription to the scheme and will receive an annual inspection. If you wish to improve your rating following an inspection you can apply for a re-visit using the form below. There is a charge for this part of the scheme. The success of the scheme will be reviewed annually by the Council and you will be notified in writing of any future changes to the scheme.
