T he Lucas County Health Department is warning of a potential public health threat in northwest Ohio.
Health officials have identified a Maumee tattoo parlor that has been operating without a proper license, and likely not meeting safety and sanitation standards.
Juki's Tattoo and Piercing, 2570 Parkway Plaza, is believed to have potentially endangered the health of those who have gotten a tattoo or body piercing at the Maumee business. Potential health risks, associated with tattoo shops operating without a proper license, include blood-borne diseases such as HIV/Aids and Hepatitis B and/or C.
The health department asks that anyone who has received a tattoo or body piercing from Juki's Tattoo after October 2009 contact them at 419-213-4132 or follow up with a physician.
