Board of Barbers and Hairdressers Attention: Tattooing, Body Piercing, and Permanent Cosmetic Coloring Courtesy License Applicants At this time, the board may only issue one courtesy license in a calendar year (12 AAC 09.004). A regulation project changing the number of courtesy licenses allowed in a calendar year will be considered by the board at their next meeting. However, if approved by the board, the regulation change may not go into effect until sometime in 2024. In the meantime, we are encouraging courtesy license applicants to apply for full licensure as a tattooist, body piercer, or permanent cosmetic colorist. Obtaining full licensure would allow the license holder to participate in as many body art events in Alaska as they would like. Applicants may be required to take and pass the Alaska written examination (covering health and safety topics). Licenses issued by this board are due for renewal August 31 of odd numbered years. If you choose to apply for full licensure, we recommend submitting your application, supporting documentation, and fees right away. If you apply for and receive a courtesy license, you are limited to participating in special events or shows within one 30-day window per calendar year.
