The first 360 degree hygiene manual, a comprehensive guide for Aesthetics, Permanent Make-up, Tattoo and Piercing. The way no one else teaches hygiene and…so much more. Everything is here inside this book.

I have gone into great detail to teach you the most important themes divided by chapters, starting with a brief explanation of what tattoo-piercing-pmu really are about, from their spread to the world, to the infectious risk of viral hepatitis in Italy, Europe and in the rest of the world, from information and contraindications to complications and unwanted effects. I describe in-depth studies on microorganisms, viral hepatitis and vaccines, closely describing the contamination mechanisms, the infectious chain and the transmission pathways of infections. Then I continue with the customer’s hygiene, the operator’s hygiene (hand washing, personal protective equipment, accident handling) and the environment (furnishings, equipment, disposables, linens) with its products and disinfectants to sanitize. I proceed with the long sterilization process with all its phases in the slightest detail; the dressing (healing and the before, during and after treatment) and new fashionable techniques (microblading, medical tattoos). I get to the assembly and disassembly of your work space. I deal with the disposal of hazardous waste at an infectious risk, contaminated waste (needles, sharps and materials) and their safe operation. I discuss the ins and outs of the legislative framework, control and supervision, courses, start-up activity and the most important documents of the requirements of the activity and the premises. I specify control indications for you, the operator (limits and prohibitions, anesthetics, informed consent, privacy, minors, conventions, piercing ear cartilage) and ending with the necessary materials (inks, equipment, needles, jewellery), risks, controls and labels, biocompatible materials.

The contents of this manual are the result of the skills I have acquired with daily practice and all the information I have gathered during the courses, conferences, and documents collected in my 27 years of experience in this field. These come from medical doctors, engineers, accredited attorneys, the Italian Asl and the Italian Institute of Health.

In addition, in the COVID-19 emergency I INTEGRATED, UPDATED, RE-ELABORATED, MODIFIED the HYGIENE MANUAL with an ADDENDUM, the new CHAPTER 16 – APPENDIX “PROTOCOLS TO WORK IN SAFETY / ANTI-CONTAGION MEASURES FROM COVID-19 IN THE CENTERS OF: AESTHETICS – PERMANENT MAKEUP / TATTOO – PIERCING” by Simona Casadei.

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.
