Message on the post cardThe virus, which causes hepatitis C, is transmitted in blood. The equipment used in tattooing and body piercing can pose a major risk of transmission of hepatitis C if contaminated with infected blood. Make sure when selecting a body artist that they have permission from the local government authority to operate from their premises and that a new sterile needle is attached to the tattooing machine while you are present.
Think before you inkYour body art will be as good as the artist you go to, and the way you look after it while it heals.
