Body Piercing Program

Contact DOH in Wakulla County

Body Piercing Salons

Body piercing, a form of body art, is the act of penetrating the skin to make, generally permanent in nature, a hole, mark, or scar. It does not include the use of a mechanized, pre-sterilized ear-piercing system that penetrates the outer perimeter or lobe of the ear or both. Inspections are performed on establishments providing these services to ensure cleanliness standards and bio-medical disposal standards are met. Portable facilities are not permitted except under special conditions.
