Apply for or Renew a Body Art Facility License

Previously, MDHHS only accepted applications for Body Art Facility licenses through the mail.  An online interface was introduced in February 2011 to facilitate more efficient applications and payments.  If necessary, application through the mail will still be accepted.

-If you are applying for an initial license, you will be required to register (create a username and password) prior to completing and application. 
-If you originally applied for your license using our paper application and are renewing your license using the online interface, you will be asked to register (create a username and password) and link your profile with your previously licensed facility (which were uploaded into the online interface).

  • If you prefer, you may still download your application and and submit it and payment through the mail.  Instructions on where to send are included in the application document.
