Welcome!

Creating living art is a unique talent, but it puts tattooists and piercers at risk of coming in contact with their client's blood. This means artists may also be exposed to bloodborne pathogens, such as hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus, or human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

This course will discuss the things you, as an employee, can do to lessen the risks associated with tattooing and body piercing. It will also discuss ways to prevent cross-contamination and how to properly clean and sanitize tools and machines.
