HCSP Launches New Hepatitis and Tattoos Site

Over the last ten years tattoos have become popular with all age groups. The reasons for getting a tattoo are varied—some people get a tattoo as an expression of one’s individuality. Others may get a tattoo to mark an important event. Still others, may get a tattoo to beautify their body.

If you are thinking about getting a tattoo it is important to realize that there is a very real chance that you could get hepatitis B, hepatitis C or another infection while having a tattoo if safety practices are not followed very carefully.

Hepatitis and Tattoos was created to promote safer tattooing. Please keep checking back for more information and pictures. We welcome advice and feedback to make the website as helpful and useful as possible.
