There is no regulation for these procedures so a new guidance document has been compiled by the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, Public Health England, the Health and Safety Laboratory and the Tattooing and Piercing Industry Union. Within the document are some helpful appendices e.g. protocols and some information leaflets for after care following a tattoo or body piercing procedure. Whilst written as guidance for those working in this industry to promote best practice, the document provides interesting and useful reading for healthcare professionals.
