Body Art Practice Guideline

Body art practice Guideline

India has made remarkable progress in controlling the epidemic of HIV/AIDS in the country but one sector that remains unrecognised as a potential source of spread of these infections is the body art industry including skin piercing and tattooing procedures as no regulations or guidelines are in place to practice this art form in India, leading to low perceived risk and susceptibility, and unawareness among the tattoo artists. Today the Indian tattoo industry is worth ₹20,000 crores. Despite being a fast-growing industry, it remains an unorganized sector in India.
