TORONTO, CANADA – Durham Regional Health Department has issued a warning to clients of a tattoo parlor in Bowmanville.
The Health Department said non-sterile equipment had been used at the boutique “Sins & Temptations” for body piercing services provided from June 2010 to April 18, 2011.
The warning states there is a “relatively low risk” that use of needles that have not been sterilized could pass diseases such as hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV, although the department said it had not received any transmission reports related to the tattoo parlor.
The parlor also provides hairdressing and tattoo services.
Clients are asked to call Durham Health Connection Line at (905)-666-6241 during office hours Monday to Friday to get an information package.
