Tattoo Educational Courses
Section 381.00775, Florida Statutes (F.S.), and Chapter 64E-28, Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.) require persons seeking licensure as a Permanent Makeup to complete an educational course approved by the department on blood-borne pathogens and communicable diseases and achieving at least 70% on an examination covering the materials in the course.
In addition, these regulations require Permanent Makeups who hold an active license, registration, or certification issued by a jurisdiction outside of Florida and who are seeking registration as a guest Permanent Makeup to meet the above mentioned educational course and examination requirements. Permanent Makeups, who completed an educational course and achieved a score of at least 70% on the examination which was required for licensure, registration, or certification in that jurisdiction, may request the department to determine if such course and examination is comparable or exceeds those requirements specified in section 64E-28.006, F.A.C. Should the department determine that the educational course and examination requirements in another jurisdiction do not meet or exceed those in section 381.00775(2)(b), F.S., and section 64E-28.006, F.A.C., the applicant must meet the same educational requirements as persons applying for licensure as a Permanent Makeup.
Submission of proof of completion of this educational course requirement and passing of the examination is only required for initial licensure or registration. There is not a continuing education requirement for renewal of an artist license or re-registration of a guest artist.
