Medical Micropigmentation Certification Program

***Late fees for CHS occupational and establishment licenses have been waived during the Governor's Declaration of Emergency per emergency rules drafted by the Department. Late fees will return at the expiration of the Declaration of Emergency.

Guidance to assist medical micropigmentation licensees in reopening to the public after restrictions from the Governor's Executive Order are lifted. Medical micropigmentation operations may resume on May 1st. 

Please check with your local municipality for rules related to reopening, as they may have additional requirements.

Medical micropigmentation is a form of permanent cosmetics and requires a medical procedure in which any color or pigment is applied with a needle or electronic machine. The law authorizing medical micropigmentation does not include tattooing; thus, medical micropigmentation does not involve placing on the body any pictures, images, numbers, signs, letters of the alphabet or designs.

Medical Micropigmentation may only be performed in a physician’s office by an individual who holds a current Oklahoma certificate issued by the State Commissioner of Health pursuant to the provisions of the Oklahoma Medical Micropigmentation Regulation Act while working under the supervision of a physician. The level of supervision shall be determined by the physician.
