The Department of Licensing will be updating their systems, and doing so will disrupt some licensing services for over a week.
In a release, the DOL says that they are replacing the software system used to issue and manage business and professional licenses.
They say that in order to ensure a successful transition to the new system they will need to shut down some software systems and operations from June 19 thru June 28.
During the outage, they will be unable to process any license applications or renewals.
The DOL system shutdown will impact most types of professional licenses, including Tattoo, Body Piercing, Body Art, Permanent Cosmetic Artists and Artist Shops
Starting June 29, 2020, businesses will have access to the new Professional and Business Licensing service to manage their license online.
Using the new service means “faster license processing and better security to protect your personal information”.
Our new system will let you:
In the new system, artist professions and endorsements will have their own license number. These licenses will still print on one license document.
For currently issued licenses and endorsements, the license number will be the same as they are now. For licenses issued in the new system, they will receive different license numbers.
