Iowa: Tattoo Parlor's Customers Urged to Get Blood Tests

September 22, 2006

Cerro Gordo County Department of Public Health is urging persons who received a tattoo or body piercing at an unlicensed Clear Lake tattoo parlor to be tested for HIV and hepatitis B and C. The business, which operated out of a residence at 715 N. Fourth St., was closed down on Sept. 14. Department officials warn there is a risk that bloodborne pathogens can be transmitted during tattooing or body piercing if instruments are not properly sterilized or are used inappropriately between clients. For more information, telephone 641-421-9320 or visit www.cghealth.com.
