Without a diploma for the completed professional course and hygiene course, your business becomes illegal

A diploma from a hygiene course for cosmetic and traditional tattooists is proof that a tattooist has undergone and passed an education that covers hygiene principles specifically related to the tattooing industry.

The purpose of such a course is to ensure that tattooists are trained to protect both themselves and their clients against health risks associated with the tattooing process.

It is mandatory for tattooists to have such a hygiene diploma to operate a tattooing business or work in the industry as part of their professional license requirements.
