Avoid touching equipment or surfaces in a tattoo studio.

I may be an art form, but tattooing is also a type of medical procedure. The process involves needles meaning means that surfaces. Supplies and tools must be completely sterile.
Tattooing and piercing have become increasingly popular among Americans, and body-art is showing on people of all ages, occupations, and social classes.
“By touching surfaces or items in the tattoo studio. You may make a sterile environment unclean, and then the artist has to clean it again before beginning to tattoo”.

The risk of contamination goes both ways.

I always would recommend never put food or drink items on the floor of a tattoo parlor. Though good tattoo shops disinfect and mop their entire shop every day. There’s always the possibility that fluids or blood from the previous client could still be lingering on the floor.
It is possible to transmit viral infections, as well as bacterial skin infections. It is essential for tattoo artists and clients to be fully aware of the potential dangers of their procedures and to understand the precautions that need to be taken to minimize the likelihood of infection or contamination.

We always recommend the client to stay away from our working station. Not only because of the risk of contamination of our work area. But also because we have expensive materials, like our machines with by the way are very expensive, we also have electronic equipment that can be damaged. We don’t care if you sit around your friend to entertain him with a pleasant conversation, but doing some crazy parties around the area where we are working. It is sometimes annoying, not only affect our focus, but can also lead to an accident where you may poke yourself with a needle. Or you may end broking some of our equipment, so please be mature. Keep in mind what we are doing on your friends is permanent.

Both artists and client should act professionally in the tattoo studio

Both artists and client should act professionally in the tattoo studio

The vibe may be casual, but you should always respect the working environment of an artist and act kindly, while you’re the tattoo shop. We understand getting a tattoo is an exciting experience that you want to share.

“However, limit the number of people you bring with you.” You should bring just one person at a time with you in the tattoo area. Too many people can become a distraction to the artist and the other clients and can affect the performance of your artist. Unfortunately, we recommend you leave the youngsters at home. ‘The Tattoo Studio is not a fun place for children.

We have expensive tools, and artwork that can do damage, and children are NEVER allowed in the tattoo area. Please make arrangements to have someone watch the children while getting tattooed. Some materials and disposables contaminated, so we do not recommend your children to be around. Some materials, like needles or paper towels, have been used to clean may have been in contact with fluids and blood. And since children tend to touch everything, it is always better; they are not around the areas where tattoos getting done.

“Frequently, a client comes into the tattoo studio and treats it with a weird level of disrespect that they would normally do at any other place of business. I would encourage clients to treat their artists or shop with the same kind of respect that you would treat a bank, a clothing store, or a restaurant.

Keep in mind always that what we do is something that requires concentration. Not only on the creative process of the design. But also during the application of the tattoo, with sometimes can take a long time. So keep the right vibe at the tattoo studio always help to the decisive final result.

Being Offered a free or low-cost touch-up doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take care of your new ink

Being Offered a free or low-cost touch-up doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take care of your new ink

Being Offered a free or low-cost touch-up doesn’t mean you shouldn’t t take care of your new ink. It also doesn’t mean you’ll need a touch-up. Most Professionals artists will offer a free or low-cost touch-up for your unique tattoo. That’s because human skin is a living canvas, and its natural reaction to being tattooed can be most of the time unpredictable.

However, being offered a free touch-up doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t take care of your new tattoo.

“For me, tattoo touch-ups are complimentary as long as my client has taken care of their new tattoo properly. If you went to the beach, pool, hot tub, long day at the gym with lots of sweating or use unclean methods. If the day after getting a tattoo, you go and do some crazy or extreme activities, then that doesn’t count. But if the client does follow the directions, then that does fall into the free touch-up category.

Similar, just because we offered a free or low-cost touch-up doesn’t mean your new tattoo will necessarily need it. Sometimes even unnecessary touch-ups can interfere with or delaying the normal and natural healing process. Touch-up has only required in case any part of the tattoo heals differently than expected.

But not all tattoos need a touch-up, so make sure to let your artist take a look always two weeks after the tattoo peeled. That allows him as a professional to see it and decide if is need it. If you are happy with your tattoo, once completed. Then it does not need to be touched up.

 

Many artists find it extremely rude if you try to haggle the price of a tattoo. Or even a touch-up section since some extensive scale work may take different times; a can sometimes be insulting to your artist. Though negotiating the price of some goods and services is reasonable. Haggling with your artist over the cost of a touch-up. Or a tattoo is typically seen as unacceptable and insulting. “You could not go into a clothing store and suggest that they lower the price of the jeans you want. So do not go into a tattoo studio and ask your artist to reduce the cost of the tattoo. That may be insulting to your tattoo artist, and it can result in your artist refusing to tattoo you.

 

Many tattoo artists are independent contractors and must pay out-of-pocket for things like health insurance. Tattooing supplies and some cases even traveling expenses. The prices they quote to you aren’t arbitrary. They reflect their experience level and also their business cost. So Make sure you always take good care of your new tattoo and always remember to go back and show it your tattoo artist. It is nice because they enjoy seeing the result of their work, but also it is right for you. Because a give them a second chance to take a look and fine-tune it, in the case is need.

 

If you are looking to get some tattoo work done, and the peace of mind, you will not need a touch-up. Just check our work at Joan Zuniga Tattoos and book your consultation with us.
