the tattoo hygiene
We take hygiene and your safety very seriously.
We never reuse ink or needles. For every client and every tattoo we use a new sterile needle which is immediately discarded in a biohazard-safe container after our work is finished.
We sterilize all of our equipment with an autoclave, which is a machine used by hospitals, doctors and dentists to sterilize their equipment to insure bacteria, germ and disease-free instruments. After the equipment is sterilized, each piece is placed in a new, clean bag, and is stored in the autoclave until the next tattoo.
We always use latex gloves and we use new ink in small individual containers that are disposed after each tattoo.
We also disinfect our work surface (our tattoo table or arm stand) and then seal it with plastic before you are positioned for your tattoo.
Unfortunately not everybody can get a tattoo. Illnesses such as Haemofilia and most skin diseases are a no no. It's best to advise on illnesses such as diabetes, epilepsy and allergies, to make sure it is in fact possible. Scars can be tattooed, all depending on many different factors.
Everybody is treated with the highest level of hygiene.
