CHAPTER 644 - COSMETOLOGY

Nevada state statutes that mention tattoos are NRS 644.470 (which states that cosmetologists cannot implant permanent pigment into the skin) and NRS 412.406 (which states that tattooing may not be adjudged by any court-martial or inflicted upon any person subject to the state militia code). Apparently this is a subject that is regulated at the local level.
