Screening and Disclosure
The Skin acts as a barrier to outside contamination – the process by which piercing and tattooing takes place, involves a disruption to that function. No matter how sterile, safe (empirical or anecdotal) the products are deemed -the risk of infection, allergy and serious reactions remain. All Tattooing and Body piercing procedures involve a potential risk to the clients health – short and possibly long term.
Known risk must be disclosed in full to each client before any procedure and potential risk should also be mitigated by employing a competent client health screening form. Failure to screen clients and disclose known risks, represents liability on your part which cannot be indemnified or passed on.
Product packaging and mfg supplied information may contain more and sometimes different information than that show on 2evolve.co.za, do not rely solely on the information found here and always read labels, warnings, msds and other mfg supplied info,before using any products. If there is any risk, uncertainty or conflicting information/advice- rather seek competent medical advise as well as information from the product Mfg and 2Evolve.co.za first.
Min age for tattooing – 18 years of age.
Min age for piercing – 16 years of age (18 years and older for nipples and genitals)
BBP training certification is mandatory in most US states and is internationally recognised as a minimum knowledge requirement. Understanding how to control exposures in your shop is also essential in assuring the safety of yourself, your clients, and your co-workers. An annual Blood Born Pantheons certification should be in place for all staff who work with equipment as well as all Body Art practitioners, while there are many great online courses, we highly recommend that your BBP courses are industry specific only and not generalised for healthcare practitioners – cathymontie.com offer online Body Art specific BBP training and certification and at reasonable rates.
