Abstract
NIOSH researchers worked with professionals in the industry to figure out how artists can be exposed to blood and bloodborne pathogens. Based on visits to piercing and tattooing shops and interviews with practicing artists, materials were developed to better inform artists of these diseases, how artists can be exposed, and reinforce safe practices to reduce the chances of exposure. The "Let Art Be Your Legacy" post card provides information about hepatitis B and suggests artists in the body art industry be vaccinated against hepatitis B and attend yearly bloodborne pathogen training.
