Permanent Cosmetics Legislation / Regulation Information

For the most current information:
Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing

Maryland has very few State regulations regulating tattoo parlors. The State of Maryland does not require tattoo artists or piercers to be licensed. The regulations that do exist are in COMAR--the Code of Maryland Administrative Regulations.

However, local county and city government are often involved in the regulation of tattooing, please check with your local government for more details.
