Tattoo hygiene rating scheme

1. Overview

The tattoo hygiene rating scheme has been launched across Greater Manchester and all registered tattoo studios are encouraged to join.

The scheme is free and aims to drive up hygiene standards and the adoption of best practice across the country. After an inspection, your studio will be awarded a rating of 1-4. This will apply for a minimum of 3 months.

The ratings are:

  1. Improvement needed
  2. Satisfactory
  3. Good
  4. Very good

You'll receive a certificate to display your hygiene rating to your customers. You can find out more by viewing the rules of the scheme (PDF 217Kb).
