[ARCHIVED] Body Art

infected tattoo 2

Did you know that in Michigan, all body art, tattooing, and piercing procedures must be done in a licensed facility? Getting your body art done at a licensed and inspected facility decreases the risk and transmission of blood borne diseases such as hepatitis B (HBV), hepatitis C (HCV), and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), and decreases the risk of infection, like the one in the picture.
