Tattoo Hygiene Rating Scheme

Tattooists and semi-permanent make up practitioners across the Borough have the chance to sign up to a scheme highlighting the hygiene and cleanliness of their business.

The Tattoo Hygiene Rating Scheme (THRS) is open to registered tattooists and semi-permanent make up practitioners across Kent.

Tattooists and semi-permanent make up practitioners who sign up to the scheme will be able to showcase how clean and hygienic their operations are by displaying a certificate and window sticker with their hygiene rating clearly shown.

This initiative will give prospective customers the confidence that the tattooist or semi-permanent make up practitioner is well trained and knowledgeable and that the business is clean and safe.

Premises will be annually rated by the Council in a similar way to the Food Hygiene Rating Scheme.  The scoring system will be one to four, one being rated the lowest, two being satisfactory (basic minimum standards) and scores three and four being rated 'Good' and 'Very Good'.

The scheme will follow 'Countywide guidelines' to maintain consistency across Kent and Medway.  Businesses which sign up to the scheme have the chance to get good publicity, with their ratings being promoted via social media and other means, helping to raise profiles in a positive way.
