Tattooing is defined as a mark or design made on or under the skin using ink, dyes, or pigments.
Tattooing can be separated into two broad forms:
- Conventional (as pictured in the image to the right)
- Cosmetic (including permanent makeup, micropigmentation, and microblading)
Microblading/Permanent Cosmetics is considered a form of tattooing in the state of Florida. The practice of tattooing in Florida requires licensure as a tattoo artist and must occur in a licensed tattoo establishment.
All forms of tattooing require licensure in Florida.
