HIV from body modification (tattoos and piercings )


Hey everyone I recently got a tattoo done in december of a phoenix bird on my hip but thats besides the point .i know a major contributing factor of the spread of HIV is unprotected sexual contact but what about getting tattoos and piercings . or is that just a common sense knoledge that we should know .H as there been any documented case of HIV being spread threw body modification  ? not to scare anyone from getting them done but just a question out of curiosity .


Many hugs


Great, the only time you worry about tattoos and piercings are the ones done at home or done while be incarcerated. You don't have to worry about repeatable parlors. I don't know of anyone that has been infected in this manner and not really sure if it's just "Theoretical." Andy, Ann or AC might know.

I've never known of a single case of infection via tattooing in a professional setting. You aren't going to make history by becoming the first.
