If you've been in the body art profession for very long, you probably already know that there are many different types of people with many different sensitivities to various things. Not only could a client have a severe anaphylactic reaction when exposed to certain inks and dyes, but they can also get an infection, as you now know, or have other medical problems while you are working on them.

While this section is optional, it's also important, because you just don't know. An emergency can happen at any time, which means whether you want to or not, you may just find yourself in a situation where this information could help you. And more importantly, help the clients you serve.

Imagine you have a person in your tattoo chair who is afraid of needles and unfamiliar with what you're about to do, and as soon as you begin giving them a tattoo, they go unconscious. Would you know what to do?

Would you know how to treat someone having a medical emergency? Would you be prepared to save a client's life if that client suddenly became unresponsive or stopped breathing or lost their pulse?

In this very important but optional program, we will be teaching you those exact skills so that if faced with an emergency, you will be able to confidently answer yes to all of the above questions.

Here is a preview of the lessons in this section of your body art course:

  • Stroke
  • Heart attacks
  • Adult CPR
  • Adult AED
  • Hands-only CPR
  • Venous bleeding
  • Arterial bleeding
  • Shock
  • Diabetes
  • Seizure
  • Allergic reactions

Strongly consider watching each of these videos the way you would any videos pertaining to body art specifically. It just might mean the difference between feeling helpless and helping save someone's life.
