New laws governing Florida tattoo artists and shops will go into effect January 1, 2012 in which oversight and licensing will go from the county level to the state level and each tattoo artist will have to be individually licensed as opposed to working under a shop's license. Additionally, minors will need parental consent to get tattoos in Florida in 2012 - a rule that currently differs from county to county.
