THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW
[ For Starters ] [ Sterilization ] [Tattoo Prices ] [ Piercing Prices ]

FOR STARTERS

When Getting a tattoo or a piercing, use common sense:

• Is the place clean?

• Do you see an Autoclave Sterilizer?

• Do the employees have a professional attitude? This also means, do they bad mouth other shops? (Which is totally unprofessional and tells me they are insecure, jealous, or both.)

• Don’t believe everything you are told. Use your own mind!

• You should also eat within 3 hours before being tattooed or pierced or at least drink something with caffeine. This will help keep you from getting light headed or passing out.

STERILIZATION

Hazardous Waste Disposal
Hazardous Waste Disposal

The shop should be clean and an autoclave should be visible. If not, ask to see it. Make sure the equipment to be used is taken out of sealed sterile bags. Also make sure you see them dispose of the used needles in a hazardous waste container. If you do not see this, it is possible they are reusing their needles! At American Art, I use new needles per person and you see me properly dispose of used ones in the hazardous waste container. Also the inks used in your tattoo are not recycled for other tattoos.
