Body art in Ohio is regulated under the authority of Chapter 3730.01 of the Ohio Revised Code (ORC) and Chapter 3701-9 of the Ohio Administrative Code (OAC).

These rules and regulations have been established to protect the public health of the community. Body Art procedures present opportunities for the transmission of blood-borne pathogens and bacterial infections. Our role in ensuring the safety of the public is to routinely conduct comprehensive inspections of Body Art facilities paying particular attention to record-keeping, sanitation requirements, and overall maintenance of the facility.
