Read for free chapters 1–3 from my book “Hygiene and Safety”

    Thanks for opening this page.
    My name is Simona Casadei and I’m an aesthetician and tattoo-make-up artist who has specialized and worked in permanent make-up for 30 years.

    In 1997, I have opened a private studio with registered trademark and logo: Carpe Diem Tattoo by Simona Casadei.

    From 2000 to 2017, I was the sole owner and operator of my Carpe Diem Tattoo studio dedicated exclusively to permanent make-up: eyebrows (with machine and microblading), eyes, lips, scars, breast areola, tricopigmentation and needling (CIT – collagen induction treatment).

    I have followed advanced courses all over Italy and abroad with world celebrities (including: Holgher Hoffman, Van Der Velden, Toni Belfatto, Natalia Yeremenco, Mary Rictherson, Victoria Ammoscato, Katerina Zapletalova, Alexandra Goreka, Branko Babik, Nadia Gulan, Karen Betts, David Zhang, etc…) which I am very proud of as I have met wonderful people who have helped me grow and become the professional I am today.

    In 2016, I published my first book Hygiene and Safety – Complete guidelines for: aesthetic treatment, permanent make-up, tattoos, piercing (Italian edition) and I have registered it © in Italy and worldwide.

    Since then, the manual contents have been checked, updated and enriched in order for them to be perfect and provide total safety. In particular:

    • in the second edition of 2017, the chapters dealing with scientific topics have been reviewed by public health physicians, and the manual has been translated into English;
    • in the third edition of 2018, the sanitary and waste-related issues were reviewed by Dr. Aurelia Fonda, hygiene and preventive medicine specialist at the Ministry of Health in Italy.
    • In the fourth edition of April 2022, the ADDENDUM was updated with the new CHAPTER 16 – APPENDIX “PROTOCOLS TO WORK IN SAFETY / ANTI-CONTAGION MEASURES FROM COVID-19 IN THE CENTERS OF: AESTHETICS – PERMANENT MAKE-UP / TATTOO – PIERCING” by Simona Casadei, updated on July 2022 in DIGITAL VERSION to provide a fundamental GUIDE to the entire sector. Chapter 16 is in Italian but there is the possibility of translating it into other languages.

    I was a speaker at congresses, conferences, fairs and events of the sector and hygiene inspector in the International Competitions of Microblading and Permanent Make-up.

    In recent years, I worked with several aesthetics, make-up and nail art magazines, writing articles on industry news.

    My aim is to spread the hygiene message over the world of aesthetics, permanent make-up, tattoo and piercing, by divulgating all the secrets I have acquired over so many years of experience in the sector.

    I have a thousand new projects for the future, always in the field of permanent make-up!

    In the 4th edition of April 2022 of the “Hygiene Manual – Complete guide for the activities of: aesthetics, permanent makeup, tattooing, piercing” you will find 15 printed Chapters (reviewed and presented by the Ministry of Health and by CEPEC – European Confederation of Professional Beauticians and Cosmeticians) together with Chapter 16, to download for free, dedicated to everything you absolutely need to know to work safely and just updated to the latest industry regulations.

    The decision to publish Chapter 16 in DIGITAL VERSION, with the pages downloadable in PDF directly by the book, following the instructions on the last page of the Manual, was carefully evaluated and considered the optimal solution to ensure that the information relating to Covid- 19, as the pandemic evolves and the new regulations are constantly updated. This makes it a unique, innovative, technological and always up-to-date manual.

    In addition, in Chapter 16 I have included direct LINKS (hyperlinks in blue) that allow you to open files with the original documents and sources used, for your further verification.

    I wrote Chapter 16 to clarify and give a GUIDE to follow for all Operators in the Personal Services and Wellness sector (Beauticians, Dermopigmenters, Tattoo Artists, Piercers, hairdressers, barbers, hairdressers, etc. and wellness centers, Spas , spas, personal treatments such as mud-balneotherapy and massage therapy, thermal pools and inhalation treatments, swimming pools and gyms connected to spas and wellness centers, etc.) and for schools, companies, associations and bodies that deal with Training courses of these activities.

    The NEW PROTOCOLS recommended are valid for all activities and services related to the Wellness and Personal Care sector.
