 Other Things You Should Know

  • Skin color will affect the brightness of colors used in a tattoo.
  • Variations in color and design may exist between any tattoos you select and as ultimately applied to your body.
  • Obtaining a tattoo is by your choice alone. A tattoo is a permanent change to your appearance and no representations can be made to you regarding the ability to change, alter, or remove any tattoo.

Communicable Diseases

  • To minimize the risk of infection, our artists do not work when they are ill. We also ask that you postpone your visit to our studio until you are free from any disease that could put other clients or our staff at risk. We want to provide the cleanest, safest environment possible and need your cooperation to do so.
  • Additionally, tattooing can tax your immune system. If you are ill, it may increase your recovery time and also put you more at risk for possible infection or other health-related complications.

Drinking and Drugs

  • We do not tattoo anyone known to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Alcohol and/or drugs will thin your blood, which can lead to excessive bleeding. If you are taking prescribed medications, please tell your artist ahead of time.

Medical Conditions

  • If you are under the care of a physician for a medical condition such as diabetes, epilepsy or high blood pressure, please tell your artist ahead of time. If a medical emergency arises while you are at our studio, we will be better prepared to handle it. We require a written letter signed by your physician, with their contact information, noting that you have discussed getting a tattoo done.

Pregnant Women

  • We do not tattoo pregnant women. Everything that goes into your body can affect your unborn baby.  Potential allergic reactions or infections could also put you and your baby at risk. The process may also affect your immune system and its ability to help you fight off infection. You should also delay your new tattoo if you are nursing. We want you and your baby to be as healthy as possible.

 

Safe Guarding Your Health – Our Procedures

Listed below are some of the procedures we use to provide the safest, most sterile conditions possible for your new tattoo or piercing.  If you have any questions regarding the tattooing process, don’t hesitate to ask.

Disposable Gloves

  • All our artists wear standard medical gloves during the tattooing process.

Inks and Pigments

  • All inks and pigments used for your tattoo are poured from its universal container into brand new, sterile ink caps.  Once the artist has finished your tattoo, the ink caps are discarded in your presence.

Needles

  • We use brand new, hospital-sterilized, disposable needles for each and every client. The artist will show you the sterile packaging and will open it only in your presence. Once the artist is finished with your tattoo, the needle is disposed of into a sharps container.

Non-disposable Equipment

  • All non-disposable equipment, such as tubes and other metal equipment, is sterilized following strict health and safety guidelines in our in-studio working autoclave.  Autoclaving is the only form of sterilizing accepted for medical instruments.  Autoclave bags are opened only in your presence.  If you have questions or concerns regarding the sterilization process we use, just ask.  We will be happy to step you through it.

Razors

  • The artist will usually prepare the area to receive a tattoo by shaving the area.  We use brand new, disposable, safety razors for each client and dispose of them immediately.

Making You Aware – The Risks

  • While tattooing and piercing is considered generally safe and we take all possible precautions to safeguard your health, there are known risks associated with the process. Research all the risks associated with tattoos to learn about the things you should look for when selecting a studio.

Allergic Reactions

  • You may experience an allergic reaction to the dyes, pigments, and processes used in tattooing. We cannot determine or guarantee that you will not have an allergic reaction. If you are unsure or concerned, start with a small tattoo first. However, this still will not guarantee that you will not experience an allergic reaction to larger tattoos.

Bacterial Infection

  • Tattoos can lead to bacterial infections, particularly if they are not properly cared for. Following our aftercare suggestions can help reduce the risk of infection. However, if your immune system is depressed because of illness or you have an allergy to any part of the process, your risk for infection is greater. If you have any questions regarding the care of your tattoo, stop by the studio to speak with a colleague or artist, or give us a call.

Viral Diseases

  • Obtaining a tattoo from a “dirty” studio or from an untrained friend or relative can often be the culprit of a viral disease.  We follow all safety guidelines required to help prevent cross-contamination.
