varies per state so be sure to research for the state you are looking to get a license from. Here in Florida it does not take much to become a tattoo artist. The state requires 0 hours of schooling to receive a tattoo license. That means you only have to pay a $60.00 fee, be 18 years old or older, have a government-issued ID, and score at minimum a 70% on the blood borne pathogens and communicable diseases course. You will need to file the establishment you will be tattooing at before the state gives you your license.
It does not take much experience to earn your tattoo license here in Florida. That’s why it’s our mission to hold this 200 hour tattoo licensure program to provide education that inspires and supports students in an intentional way and guide them to a successful career as licensed tattoo artists. We recognize that the trade of tattoo is another form of healing art and will implement techniques and philosophies to practice this art with a deeper compassion. In addition, our Orlando Tattoo School is licensed through the Florida Department of Education where we are qualified to teach this program while maintaining safety standards.
Post-graduates from our Orlando Tattoo School may officially work as a licensed tattoo artist in Florida. If a student is out of state, please be sure to check up on the requirements for that area. Let us guide you on a new journey to achieve a desire of expansion!
