The Board of Supervisors finds and declares the following:
The purpose of this ordinance is to implement California Health & Safety Code Sections 119300 et seq., the Safe Body Art Act, to provide minimum standards for the regulation of persons engaged in California in the business of tattooing, body piercing, branding, and the application of permanent cosmetics. These standards are intended to protect both the practitioner and the client from transmission of infectious diseases through the application of proper body art procedures, and the prevention of cross-contamination of instruments and supplies.
