The Tattoo Hygiene Rating Scheme is open to registered tattooists and semi-permanent make up practitioners across Kent.
Tattooists and semi-permanent make up practitioners who sign up to the scheme will be able to showcase how clean and hygienic their operations are by displaying a certificate and window sticker with their hygiene rating clearly shown.
Premises are annually rated by the Council in a similar way to the Food Hygiene Rating Scheme.
The scoring system will be 1 to 4:
1 = rated the lowest
2 = satisfactory (basic minimum standards)
3 = good
4 = very good
