Tattoos and Body Piercings

Tattooing and body piercing, or body modification, has become increasingly popular in recent years. These activities present a minimal risk if done by a trained individual following the proper precautions.

The Harrison County Health Department has implemented Local Ordinance 2018-14 that governs body modification. These rules require licensing of tattoo artists, body piercers, and associated establishments, and also set operational requirements for tattoo and/or body piercing establishments.
