Getting Inked - Are you doing it safely?

Did you know that any piercing equipment used during tattooing or piercing that is contaminated with someone else’s blood could allow a blood borne virus (BBV) such as Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C or HIV to be transmitted to you?

Some BBVs are also passed from one person to another person during sexual activity. So getting a tattoo or piercing where contaminated equipment has been used, not only has the potential to transmit a BBV to you, but could also cause you to be infectious to others who you have sex with.

Here is a checklist that you should be ticking off before receiving a tattoo from a tattoo artist: https://shvic.org.au/.../tattoos-and-body-piercing-checklist
