Welcome to the Body Art Section
The Body Art Program was established in May of 2002 with the City Council adoption of LMC 8.08 which requires anyone applying body art to be permitted by the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department (LLCHD). LMC 8.08 will reduce the risk communicable disease outbreaks and injuries associated to body art by providing health and safety training, review facility construction plans, issuing permits, and take enforcement actions when necessary. Body Art requirements include both establishment and practitioner permits and initial and routine inspections. Establishment permits are renewed annually. Lincoln Body Art Practitioner Permits are issued for 3 years and are obtained at LLCHD. Practitioners must pass a written exam in order to obtain a permit. Practitioners must post their photo LLCHD permit when performing body art procedures.
