ESSENTIAL HYGIENE PRACTICES FOR TATTOO ARTISTS

1. Wash your hands

wash your hands, sanitise them before, and keep your nails short and not have any cuts or injuries.

2. Use nitrile gloves.

You should have plenty of these disposable gloves, but nitrile, NOT LATEX. They are more comfortable and much more resistant to breakage, and they’re also hypoallergenic.

Make sure you buy your size to have freedom of movement. They shouldn’t be too tight or too loose.

3. Cover all surfaces with cling film.

You must wear gloves during this process. 

No matter if it is the stretcher, your worktable, or materials such as disinfectant bottles, Vaseline, spray, ink or any other element that is not disposable but that you need to touch more than once.

This way, you will create a protective barrier preventing bacteria and viruses from being deposited on objects, and you can eliminate them more easily. Remember to wear gloves at all times.

4. Disinfect the machines with isopropyl alcohol and use disposable covers.

Isopropyl-type alcohol is used to clean plastics, acrylics, and materials that can be damaged and dried by regular alcohol. Clean all your machines with this product always before and after tattooing.

 

Before you start tattooing, you must cover both the machines and the cables with special protectors. You can get these at any tattoo supply store or from specialised suppliers.

5. When ready to start tattooing, change your gloves and wear ' new ones.'

This is essential because if you don't do it, you will transfer dirt and bacteria from the objects to your client.

Every time you touch another surface that is not covered by cling film or disinfected, you will have to change your gloves.

Always use new gloves, no matter how often you have to do this.

Important

All material in contact with skin, blood, and fluids must be aseptic and single-use.

Occasionally, it's scary how much material needs to be used and disposed of in a tattoo, but you need to do it. Incorporate it as part of your work routine.

You must have separate disposables.

That is, you will not throw away needles, disposable gloves or anything contaminated with your clients' fluids in a common rubbish bin.

Separate the waste in specialised bins for high-risk waste like these.

On the other hand, try to use disposable aprons and masks, as they will facilitate the sterilisation of all materials and will avoid contaminating your client's wound.

Make sure nobody smokes, eats, or drinks in your study and workspace.

This is often underestimated, but you can't risk contamination in the place where you tattoo. You must guarantee total cleanliness.

You must guarantee total cleanliness.

However, as we spend so much time in the studio, this may not be 100% guaranteed. For this reason, we recommend that you prepare an area away from the table and the space where you tattoo exclusively for this use.
