1. No increased risk of transfusion-transmissible infections after tattooing, body piercing, or acupuncture among blood donors in the Netherlands. (PubMed)

No increased risk of transfusion-transmissible infections after tattooing, body piercing, or acupuncture among blood donors in the Netherlands. In the Netherlands, needle-related events (NREs) including tattoos, piercings, and acupuncture are a reason for temporary blood donor deferral. This study aims to evaluate whether donors with recent NREs had a higher risk of transfusion-transmissible infections (TTIs) compared to donors without recent NREs.Data from 2006 through 2015 on all blood (...) with an increased risk for TTIs. A total of 29 out of 287 TTI-positive donors (11 repeat donors, 18 new donors) reported a recent NRE pre- and/or post-donation. Recent NREs, all needle-stick injuries, were the likely route of transmission in 12 out of 287 (4.2%) of TTI-positive donors. The donor health questionnaire (DHQ) identified only 1 out of 12 TTI-linked NREs. Non-return after NRE deferral, any deferral, or no deferral was 24, 15, and 5%, respectively.Recent tattoos, body piercings, or acupuncture were

An observational study of patients' attitudes to tattoos and piercings on their physicians: the ART study. Perceptions regarding body art change over time as societal norms change.

This study was performed to determine whether emergency department (ED) patients perceived a difference in physician competence (...) , professionalism, caring, approachability, trustworthiness and reliability in the setting of exposed body art.Standardised surveys about physician competence, professionalism, caring, approachability, trustworthiness and reliability rating providers on a five point Likert scale were administered to patients in an ED after an encounter with a physician provider who demonstrated no body art modification, non-traditional piercings, tattoos, or both piercings and tattoos.

that tattoo and piercing parlors may have different sanitation and sterilization standards in accordance with how strictly a state chooses to manage the industry. For example, Nevada does not regulate tattoo or piercing shops, but New Jersey requires each shop to meet certain equipment sterilization and sanitation standards. Many people also decide to forgo a professional setting and receive body art from their friends, which can be especially dangerous. This lack of universal regulations and sanitation (...) laws increases the risk of . Image Courtesy of Unsplash How Tattoos and Piercings Work: A tattoo is created by sharp needles repeatedly piercing the skin to embed ink into your body. While this ensures a permanent image, it also exposes your blood directly to the needle and anything that might remain on the needle from its previous usage. As hepatitis B is spread by direct blood contact, getting a tattoo poses a risk of infection if the equipment is not single use has not been properly sanitized

8. A systematic review of animal predation creating pierced shells: implications for the archaeological record of the Old World. (PubMed)

A systematic review of animal predation creating pierced shells: implications for the archaeological record of the Old World. The shells of molluscs survive well in many sedimentary contexts and yield information about the diet of prehistoric humans. They also yield evidence of symbolic behaviours through their use as beads for body adornments. Researchers often analyse the location of perforations in shells to make judgements about their use as symbolic objects (e.g., beads), the assumption (...) being that holes attributable to deliberate human behaviour are more likely to exhibit low variability in their anatomical locations, while holes attributable to natural processes yield more random perforations. However, there are non-anthropogenic factors that can cause perforations in shells and these may not be random. The aim of the study is compare the variation in holes in shells from archaeological sites from the Old World with the variation of holes in shells pierced by mollusc
