The Florida Department of Health
The Tattoo Program is a newly regulated program that was implemented by the Department of Health in 2012. The program requires the licensure of tattoo artists and tattoo establishments, and also sets forth educational requirements and the standards of practice for conventional and cosmetic tattoo artists, as well as operational requirements for tattoo establishments. It is also designed to protect the public from the risks associated with potentially infectious biomedical waste.
