Piercings and tattoos
• Make sure you have had a tetanus shot within the last 10 years.

• Choose a professional you trust and who has experience.

• Make sure that the instruments used are sterilized, that disposable needles are used, that work surfaces and other tools are cleaned and disinfected and that the professional washes his or her hands and wears sterile gloves to prevent the transmission of hepatitis B, hepatitis C, tuberculosis, tetanus and HIV. Don’t feel shy about asking questions.

• Check the cleanliness of the location.

• Make sure your skin is disinfected before, during and after the procedure to prevent infection.

• Ask the professional for detailed explanations of how to look after your tattooed skin.

• If you have any other questions, do not hesitate to see a health professional.
