Without everyone worried about HIV transmission, it is easy to forget
that hepatitis (specifically hep-B) is a much stronger and virulent
virus to worry about. Fortunately, you *can* get protection against both
hepatitis A and B! Check with your health insurance to see if it's
covered--otherwise, you might have to shell out $200 or so for both.
There are two shots (injected a month apart) for hep-A, and three shots
(injected over the course of six months) for hep-B. You are strongly
urged to get protected if you are planning to get tattoos *OR* pierces
on a regular basis.

As a warning however, note that a very small percentage of individuals 
react negatively to Hepatitis B vaccines, and could actually become
ill from the vaccines themselves. If you are contemplating getting 
vaccinated for Hep B, talk to your health care professional to weigh the
risks against the benefits. Note: Not all health care professionals are
apprised of the most current statistics on the adverse effects of Hep B
vaccines.
