Schoolies Warned to Think Before They Ink
With thousands of high school students converging on schoolies celebrations throughout the state this week, the Hepatitis Council of Queensland is encouraging school leavers to think before getting a tattoo or piercing.
Health Promotion Officer for the Hepatitis Council of Queensland, Ms Emma Dalglish, said that schoolies who let their friends give them a tattoo or body piercing risked contracting a blood borne virus such as hepatitis C.
