About Florida Tattoo Academy

Florida Tattoo Academy is currently the only licensed Tattoo & Piercing School by the Florida Department of Education in the entire Tampa Bay Area. Our goal is to prepare the next generation of creative professionals for a future in the art of tattooing. The tattoo industry is the only art form that is regulated and we feel that is for good reason. For instance, when you work on human skin you have to learn how to maintain a sterile work environment and not pass on blood-borne diseases or infections. A state-licensed tattoo school will teach you everything you need to know to get licensed as a tattoo artist but most importantly to teach you how to be successful in the tattoo industry.
