Why are there so many laws for body piercing? Body Piercing has become so mainstream that our government has had to produce laws for the purpose of protecting us. Anyone can do a Body Piercing, but is it being done properly and in a sterile environment? Now that is the important question.
There is a case in Canada right now where people are in serious risk, because of a Tattoo and Body Piercing parlor not doing their job completely. There are over 2000 people at risk of getting; Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and HIV and many other possibilities because they were not doing what should have been done. Their sterilizing equipment was not working properly since November of 2006, and this was not discovered until August of this year.
Needless to say this is a very serious and sad occurrence, and this is exactly why it is so important that business’s have rules and guidelines to follow, and that consumers check to make sure that they are following them. Please make sure that you throughly check out the place that tats or pierces you. Do it for yourself.
