Body Art Program
Florida's total population of licensed body-piercing salons remains relatively stable at approximately 400 but is quite fluid with about 20% annual turnover. Salons are inspected at least annually by teams composed of a nurse and an environmental-health professional in order to survey a salon's conditions with respect to sterilization, sanitation, safety, and standard precautions. An establishment may be issued a temporary license to operate at a fixed location for not more than 14 consecutive days in conjunction with a single event or celebration. A temporary salon must meet the same requirements for licensing as must a salon that operates at a fixed location for up to a year.
