PSA Beware Of Home Tattoo Parlours
I just had a discussion with someone on BUNZ (feel free to message me for their username) about their post offering tattoos. This person is based out of his (identifies as male on Facebook) home and has not been inspected by Toronto Public Health, as required by law for businesses selling a service to the public. Please be aware that going to these home based businesses can put you at risk of contracting a blood borne illness, if they have not been cleared by their local health unit. Home based businesses can be safe, if inspected properly, but they have to meet certain criteria and many don’t. Do yourself a favour and only get tattoos from reputable sources.
