Piercing and tattoos

You can have piercings and tattoos (as long as you are over 18, or have permission from your parents!) All tattoo and piercing studios should be following universal precautions. This means all equipment (like needles) will be clean before each tattoo or piercing. No one can refuse you a tattoo or piercing because you have HIV.
