What health and safety precautions do you take?
All of our needles are new and pre-sterilized. They are used for your tattoo session only and then disposed of. Everything comes from clean and sterile packages. The tubes we use are surgically cleaned and sterilized in a certified autoclave. The inks we use are poured into single use disposable cups. Once your tattoo session is finished, the cup and the left over ink are disposed of - it is NEVER re-used or poured back into the container. Everything else that may come into contact with your tattoo - counter surface and equipment - is covered with plastic to prevent cross-contamination. The plastic is disposed of at the end of your session.
