Tattoo Advice from the Experts

Seeking a tattoo or body piercing?

Choosing the right studio to get tattooed or pierced at is not something to take lightly. Because this industry deals with blood (And therefore, blood-borne diseases), and often deals with making permanent alterations to your body, it's extremely important to find a location and an artist that holds the highest standards possible.

1) NEVER get tattooed in a non-professional setting (homes, hotels, "tattoo parties", etc...) Since tattooing outside of a shop is illegal in Delaware, it's impossible for the state to inspect the artists working conditions, or certify that their equipment/technique is sterile to begin with. It's also impossible to gain insurance that will protect you. By trying to save a few dollars "doing it cheap", you could expose yourself to potentially deadly diseases (HEP-A ,B, & C, MRSA, etc...) or wander around with a terrible piercing or tattoo that can cost much more to fix... IF it can be fixed.

2) There is no such thing as a tattoo artist who "tattoos on the side". Professional artists can make a very comfortable living once they get hired at a reputable studio. So the only reason they would offer discounted work at home is because:

a) They aren't knowledgeable, or talented enough to work professionally.

b) They can't follow safety standards, or rules at a pro-shop.

c) They are trying to "Figure tattooing/piercing out" on you! (Not someone you want permanently altering your body)

3) Make sure the studio has the following:

a) A state permit. A city permit. And a Body Art license.

b) Artists who are willing to answer ALL of your questions about preparation, sterilization including documentation proving that their sterilizer is working properly), application, and aftercare.

c) Ask if they are certified in "Blood-borne Pathogens and cross-contamination prevention". They should have a certificate!

d) All needles and tubes are opened in front of you from single use packages, and they are labeled as "sterile".

e) They have insurance! (This protects both of you!)

f) look at their portfolio (A collection of tattoos they have done, normally in a binder/book). If you are not impressed by the work you see, RUN!
