Most Tattooists normally have 3 or more machines. After use they should be cleaned down with some kind of anti bacterial and virus product.
We use imported Western needles. All needles are new and disposed of after use.
After each Tattoo the Artists' Work Tables should be discenfected with an antibacteria and virus product and before a new Tattoo everything to be covered with plastic wrap.
Every client gets their own pot of ink and all used pots and unused ink are disposed of after each Tattoo.
Here at Pitbull Tattoo Studio we have all the necessary hygiene, and each Tattoo is carried out following the correct hygienic procedures. A Tattoo therefore shouldn't have any adverse reaction or infection due to the manner in which it was administered. After finishing a Tattoo the receptionist will give an instruction procedure about the Tattoo care needed to the client wrote in English language.
Apply Vaseline everytime the Tattoo seems dry.
Avoid contact with;
- Chlorine (Swimming Pool)
We may advise a client to use Bepanthen and usually in every country there is an equivalent.
Not taking good care of a new Tattoo during the healing period may lead to an infection and or it's degradation. The best advice is from a professional and not the mates. We recommend also that the clients follow our instructions rather than those of another shop.
Wash the Tattoo at least 3 times a day with antibacterial soap and water, pat it dry. After 2 Days tattoo is done, with clean hands apply Bepanthen making sure to massage the cream right into the Tattoo until it is completely absorbed. Do not leave a cap of cream on the Tattoo as this can cause infection. Continue with this treatment until all of the dead skin peels off by itself.
Not to scratch the scabs
Do not put any alcohol, cologne etc...
Do not put gauze
Keep the Tattoo as clean as possible at all times
Unfortunately not everybody can get a Tattoo. Illnesses such as Heamafilia and most skin diseases. It's best to advise on illnesses such as diabetes, epilepsy and allergies, to make sure it is in fact possible. Scars can be Tattooed all depending on many different factors. Everybody is treated with the highest level of hygiene. The best thing to do in any case is to just ask, as we really have to see and talk to the client first.
