About skin piercing

Eugo logo.

There are a number of activities that involve the use of needles to pierce the skin. The law states that these activities must be conducted in a manner that is safe and hygienic. We are responsible for registering such businesses, and inspecting them to ensure that they pose no risk to the public.

The Local Government (miscellaneous provisions) act 1982 Part VIII requires the following types of skin piercing to be registered with the Council:

  • acupuncture
  • tattooing
  • body-piercing
  • electrolysis
  • semi-permanent make up 
  • micro blading 
  • micro pigmentation
