How do you ensure that everything is clean and sterile?

Each tattoo is done with a new single use needle, which is blister packed to prevent tampering or resealing. The needle is EO Gas sterilized at the factory and once used is placed in an approved biohazard container. Once full, that container is then taken to an appropriate disposal location. Tubes are cleaned and autoclaved on site.

Do we need an appointment?

Appointments are not always necessary but strongly recommended. Walk-ins are always welcome when there is time in the schedule and design willing.

Is it OK to bring my child to the shop with me?

We do not allow children in the shop as it is both a distraction to the artists and a hazard.
