  • Body art to the head, neck (above the neck line of a t-shirt), and face is prohibited.
  • Very small/minimal body art on the hands (below the wrist bone) may be allowed, but is subject to approval on a case-by-case basis by the Sheriff or his designee.
  • Mutilation, tongue bifurcation, and foreign objects inserted under the skin are prohibited.
  • The use of gold, platinum or other veneers or caps for the purpose of dental ornamentation is prohibited.  Capped, veneered, or natural teeth shall not be decorated with designs, initials, or jewels.
