  • Are needles and jewelry labeled and kept in clean, sterilized packages?
  • Ask if all staff is vaccinated against hepatitis B.
  • Ask if the studio has a health certificate.
  • Is the staff attentive and willing to answer your questions, concerns, and fears? Have they answered them to your satisfaction?
