“A medical intervention” – a piercing tattoo or permanent make-up is a medical intervention which automatically bears certain risks.
To minimize the risks of infection for both the customer and the executing staff, certain measures have to be taken to prevent the risk of infection or the transmission of pathogens.
This is regulated in the Federal Minister for Science and Work’s Order “Rules of Practice for Pedicure, Cosmetic and Massage by Tradepersons BGBI. II Nr. 262/2008”.
In §4 the order demands an annual Proof of Clearance by an accredited body which tests and attests the compliance of hygiene-relevant requirements regarding the equipment, materials used and processes at piercing, tattooing and applying permanent make-up.
