The new design was inspired by statues of Hygeia, the ancient Greek goddess of health and preventive medince. In classic sculpture, Hygeia is always shown using a bowl to feed a snake—the symbol of medicine in Greek mythology.
The stylized snake and bowl is therefore a powerful and appropriate symbol of the Body Art Training Group's efforts to promote hygienic policies and procedures that will keep both artists and clients healthy and safe.

In 2013, the Body Art Training Group created Easy Wizard™. This is an online app that helps a body art shop owner quickly create a shop safety plan that satisfies the requirements of both OSHA's Bloodborne Pathogens Standard and local regulations. The plan includes an Exposure Control and Infection Prevention Plan (ECIPP) and an Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP). If a body art shop is located in California, an Infection Protection Control Plan (IPCP) is also included. Go to http://www.ecipp.com to learn more about Easy Wizard™.
