However, getting tattoos or piercings can be risky. </p><ul><li>If you are considering getting a tattoo or piercing, you may want to talk to a member of your CCT first. </li><li>Try a temporary tattoo similar to the one you are considering. Keep replacing it for a couple of months. If you find you are getting tired of it, it probably is not the right design for you.</li><li>Yes, he’s a great friend (and maybe a fantastic artist), but that doesn’t mean you should let him do your tattoo or piercings!</li><li>Find a reputable tattoo and piercing shop to avoid the risk of getting an infection. They should use individual vials of ink. If they get the ink from a larger bottle, watch them at work and make sure they don’t dump the left over ink from individual vials back into the larger bottle.</li><li>Needles that aren’t cleaned properly can lead to infections, like HIV or hepatitis. Check to make sure that they use single-use needles—they will be in little packets like the ones you use for infusing.</li><li>Inject yourself with factor before you get your tattoo or piercing, as well as the day after.<br>Don’t skimp on the aftercare. Obey the instructions of the piercer or tattoo artist, even if you get bored with it.</li></ul> <figure class="asset-c-80"><img src="https://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/akhassets/ttcHem_6MindBody4b_EN.jpg" alt="" /> </figure>
