a brand new tattoo supply site that offers the highest-quality tested tattoo equipment at liquidation prices
“No matter what your reasoning, make sure you get your body piercings from a professional that uses sterile body piercing supplies and has all required certifications and permits to pierce legally in the county he/she operates in…”
“Always make sure your body piercer or tattoo artist is using new needles that are pre-sterilized and come out of a package…”
The first question you should ask is if the piercer is registered and permitted by the local health department. If they are, they will have a health department permit posted in plain sight, along with a permit number you can jot down for verification. If your tattoo artist or piercer gives you the run-around, or says it isn’t with them, they are not registered and you should leave.
Is it worth the five or ten bucks you save to have someone who does not use the proper sterilized body piercing supplies or tools pierce you with a used needle that may have been used before you with someone who has Hepatitis or AIDS?
“Make sure you purchase your body piercing supplies only from a respected supplier of body piercing supplies that has a clear and thorough sterilization process explained on their web site and who also posts regular spore test results of their autoclaves and sterilization equipment…”
“Some people have found that taking a few over-the-counter pain relievers about 30 minutes before getting pierced will lessen the pain…”
“Make sure before you allow anyone to pierce or tattoo you that you have seen their recent registration and permit from the health department that oversees the county you are in. Also ask to see that all of their tattoo and piercing supplies are sterile, and pouched in color-change packages that guarantee sterility. If they cannot produce valid permits, licenses or refuse to show you the needles, tools and body jewelry they will be using, save yourself the infection and leave …”
“…make sure you go to a certified body piercer to get it done, who uses all sterile body piercing supplies…”
“It is your right as a customer to demand to see the piercer’s registered body technician permit (it should have a number printed on it for confirmation with the county health department) and also make sure you see that all the needles, tools, body jewelry and other tattoo and body piercing supplies used are in sterile, color-changing autoclave pouches. Remember, your health, and possibly even life depend upon it!”
