Check if the tattoo parlour uses disposable needles?
Check if the tattoo parlour is clean.
Check if the tattoo parlour uses disposable inks.
Never tattoo yourself or allow your friends to do it. Deal only
with experienced parlours.
Ask what procedures are used to prevent the spread of infectious
diseases. Tattoo artists should wear surgical gloves to help
maintain a germ-free environment near your skin.
Ask how needles and inks are used. Needles and inks used on one
person must never be used on another. Reputed and experienced
tattoo parlours will always use new needles. But still it is
safe to verify.
Make sure that the artist unwraps the needle in front of you.
Every ink used in your tattoo should be poured into a small cup
specifically for your tattoo. Any leftover ink should be thrown
away after your tattoo is finished.
