Tattoo Hygiene Rating Scheme

The Tattoo Hygiene Rating Scheme (THRS) is a voluntary scheme aimed at improving standards of tattooists and allowing the public to choose a Tattooist who meets high standards of hygiene.

Premises under the scheme will be inspected regularly to ensure they maintain high standards.  Where poor standards are found the published rating for the business will drop and they will be required to display a new rating certificate.
