Hi, I want to be a tattoo artist but am struggling to find clear information on licensing. Can I apply for a personal tattoo licence if I don’t have premises to tattoo at? There’s a few studios you can day hire that are licensed tattoo studios and that’s where I ideally intend to tattoo. I’m just confused as to whether it’s a requirement to have a premises ready for them to inspect?

Hi Poppy, we have written an article in our Advice Hub covering that topic:

Tattoo Laws in The UK: Making Sure You’re Compliant

As regulations may vary from county to county in the UK, it is best to contact the local council you wish to work in directly.
