Again, it may not excite you, but legislation is there whether you like it or not and we believe that even if it is not something you consider reading before bedtime, you should still be aware of it if it affects your business.
Health Risks & How to prevent them
Any industry that comes into contact with any form of bodily fluids should be aware of the health risks that walk hand in hand. This is especially important in the piercing industry since there is a risk (however small) of needle stick injuries and cross contamination.
Creating a safe, sterile and hygienic studio
