The Missouri Division of Professional Registration, Office of Tattooing, Body Piercing and Branding (Office) has received inquiries regarding the regulation of the practice of "microblading." The Office appreciates the concerns for public safety in the practice of the "microblading" procedure. Although the Office recognizes the potential for public safety issues, the Office has not been given specific statutory authority to regulate this practice.

Practitioners and establishments, licensed by the Office, who offer the "microblading" service, must comply with licensing, safety and sanitation requirements of Chapter 324 of the Missouri Revised Statutes and Title 20, Division 2267 of the Code of State Regulations as such relates to their licensed professions as tattoo, body piercer and branding practitioners and establishments. Those practitioners and establishments are also subject to periodic inspections to help ensure compliance with the applicable laws of those licensed professions. However, the "microblading" practice, itself, is not subject to the statutes and regulations enforceable through this Office.

The Office would like to caution Missouri consumers to ask individuals offering to provide "microblading" services about their training and qualifications to perform such service before receiving "microblading" services.
