  • Earlobe Piercers Can Now Renew

    Passage of SB 107​ by the 2013 Legislature created an earlobe piercing filed of practice under the Board of Body Art Practitioners separate from the body piercing field of practice. Prior to January 1, 2014, earlobe piercing licenses were issued on a temporary basis for a single year. Earlobe piercers holding licenses may now be issued a permanent license valid for one year which may be renewed annually, if the license is renewed before it becomes inactive. Renewal information will be mailed to current temporary earlobe piercing license holders approximately 45 days before the license becomes inactive.

    An individual who does not renew his or her temporary earlobe piercing license before the license becomes inactive must reapply, pay all required fees and meet all qualification requirements for a permanent earlobe piercing license, including passing the Client Care and Safety Sanitation and Infection Control Examination.
