Registration of cosmetic treatments
If you offer tattooing, semi-permanent skin colouring, cosmetic piercing, acupuncture or electrolysis in Middlesbrough, you must be registered with our Public Protection Service.
The premises used for cosmetic treatments must also be registered.
Once you're registered, you'll be issued with a certificate of registration, which should be displayed at your place of work.
