Some good schools and programs that offer tattoo training online include the American Safety Council, Body Art Training Group and ICE Training Institute, notes FloridaHealth.gov. As of 2015, these programs offer training in bloodborne pathogen safety that can be used to fulfill tattoo artist certification requirements in many states.
Prospective tattoo artists should check the certification requirements for their individual states before enrolling in a course. For example, ICE Training Institute offers the Bloodborne Pathogens and Communicable Diseases tattoo education course to Florida residents, while Hawaii residents can enroll in the Bloodborne Pathogens and Communicable Diseases for the Hawaii Tattoo Artist course. As of 2015, the site offers the training course "Bloodborne Pathogens and Infection Control for the Tattoo Artist," which is accepted in most other states, notes ICETrainingInstitute.com.
