Body Art Studios

All Tattoo and Body Piercing Studios (referred to as Body Art Studios) must have a permit from the Wyoming County Health Department. All facilities that do Microblading must obtain a Tattoo Studio permit.

Environmental Health helps to protect the health of the citizens of Wyoming County by permitting and inspecting all Body Art Studios. Body Art Studios are inspected every 6 months. Temporary Body Art Studios are inspected when they set up for an event.

All tattooing, body piercing, or micro blading must be done at a permitted (permanent or temporary) Body Art Studio.

Body Art Plan Review

All Body Art Studios that are new, being renovated, or have a change of ownership must go through the plan review process. This starts with filling out a plan review application:

All Body Art Studios must follow the West Virginia Tattoo Studio and/or Body Art Studio Regulations.

Once your plan review is approved you must contact a Sanitarian and schedule an opening inspection. The Sanitarian will evaluate your Body Art Studio to ensure that it is in compliance with the Tattoo and/or Body Piercing Regulations and that your Body Art Studio can be operated in a safe and sanitary manner.

All body piercers must have a current Registration with the West Virginia DHHR. Click here for more information.
