AS 08.13.120. Shop License.
- (a) The board shall adopt regulations for the licensing of shops. The regulations must require that a shop for tattooing,
permanent cosmetic coloring, or body piercing be inspected and certified by the Department of Environmental
Conservation as being in compliance with the regulations adopted under AS 44.46.020
before a shop license may be issued under this subsection. A shop owner shall be licensed to operate a shop without
examination, but, unless the shop owner is a practitioner, the shop owner may not conduct business without employing a
manager who is a practitioner. This subsection does not apply to a shop for the practice of barbering, hairdressing, hair braiding, or
esthetics located in a community having a population of less than 1,000 people that is not within 25 miles of a
community of more than 1,000 people.
- (b) The regulations adopted under (a) of this section must include provisions under which the board may issue a temporary
shop license to a person who has a license or temporary permit under this chapter to practice tattooing, permanent
cosmetic coloring, or body piercing. The temporary shop license authorized under this subsection may only be
issued to cover a site where the practitioner intends to hold a workshop or to demonstrate techniques as part of a
convention or other special event, as defined by the board, that includes other practitioners of tattooing, permanent cosmetic coloring or
body piercing. Each practitioner of tattooing, permanent cosmetic coloring or body
piercing who holds a workshop or demonstrates techniques at a convention or special event shall have a separate
temporary shop license and a license or temporary permit under this chapter to practice tattooing, permanent
cosmetic coloring or body piercing. The board shall issue a temporary shop license upon receipt of an application from
a practitioner demonstrating compliance with the regulations adopted under this section and payment of the appropriate
fee; however, the temporary shop license may be summarily revoked, without refunding of the fee, if the Department of
Environmental Conservation determines after an inspection that the cleanliness or sanitation conditions at the site
covered by the temporary license pose a clear and immediate danger to the public health or safety. A licensee may
appeal a summary revocation under this subsection to the superior court.
