Body Piercing / Tattooing

The Florida Department of Health in Suwannee County, Environmental Health Section

Body piercing and tattooing are invasive procedures that present the potential for infection. It can result in infections of the pierced or tattooed site, especially if aftercare procedures are not followed. Blood borne pathogen transmission, such as Hepatitis B, is possible if minimum sanitary and safety standards are not met.

The Florida Department of Health in Alachua County manages the Body Piercing Program for Suwannee County.
