AHS warns Edmontonians to get tested after tattoo parlour shut down

Alberta Health Services is warning Edmontonians who may have received fresh ink from a home-based tattoo shop to get tested for viruses, including Hepatitis B and C, and HIV.

The province issued a closure order for Tazzman Tattoo, an operation run out of a residence near 107 Avenue and 105 Street, and artist Steve Tazz Devilman.

AHS believes the parlour was not using proper sterilization or sanitation processes when administering tattoos.
