Do you have concerns about a hairdresser, beauty salon or tattoo parlour? With any skin penetration, infection control is vital.

Most people go to established studios. Established businesses are required to comply with high standards of infection control to reduce the spread of infectious diseases such as hepatitis B, C and HIV/AIDS. Others may place their health at risk by going to amateurs.
