Before You Begin
Permanent Cosmetics professionals are skilled technicians who must undergo rigorous training and certification, all of which is regulated by state laws. Effective January 1, 2012, the Florida Department of Health requires licensure of Permanent Makeup/ tattoo technicians and their establishments. It also sets the educational requirements and standards of their training. (http://www.myfloridaeh.com/community/Tattoo/index.html)
