Must complete an approved, online Bloodborne Pathogens Training Course per California State and Contra Costa County laws/regulation
Roughly 2 hours to complete online and will cost you anywhere from $15 to $30.
A list of approved courses from the county will be sent to all students upon registration.
Must possess an active Body Art Practitioner License (aka tattoo license) OR a Temporary Body Art Practitioner License per California State and Contra Costa County laws/regulation.
Most beginner students do not have an active tattoo license and this is NORMAL! I will guide you through the process of obtaining a temporary license so that you can legally practice on a live model under my supervision during your training. The temporary license will be issued to all artists by the Contra Costa County Health Department. There is no way around this - in order to practice on a live model you have to have either an active license or temporary license. It is the law in California. This will cost you $145. The registration fee is $100 and the application fee is $45. More info here: https://cchealth.org/eh/body-art/pdf/Temporary-Practitioner-Application.pdf
The first 2 days of this course must be completed by you, online - it is self-paced.
All 3 days of in-person training will take place at my studio in San Ramon, California.
