The Florida Department of Health implemented statutes that require licensure of tattoo artists and tattoo establishments. The law addresses educational requirements and standards of practice for conventional and cosmetic artists and operational requirements for tattoo establishments.
The Florida Department of Health in Collier County is responsible for the sanitary and safety requirements related to the design, operation, and maintenance of tattoo facilities and temporary locations within Collier County.
Tattoo artists are required to be licensed in the county in which they reside and must provide picture identification with their home address.
Body piercing, a form of body art, is the act of penetrating the skin to make a permanent hole, mark or scar. It does not include the use of mechanized, pre-sterilized ear-piercing systems that penetrate the outer perimeter or lobe of the ear.
Minimum sanitary and safety requirements related to the design, operation, and maintenance of body piercing establishments are given in Chapter 64E-19, Florida Administrative Code. Facility operators and piercers must be trained in infection control procedures prior to licensure of a body piercing facility.
