Client receiving safe tattoo


Tattoo Safety

Our Public Health Inspectors inspect tattoo studios in Brantford and Brant County and promote safe tattooing to help you stay healthy.

The Health Unit's Inspection Reports provides quick and easy access to the results of tattoo studio inspections.

If getting a tattoo, be safe. Ask the artist:

  • Do you use only new sterilized needles?

  • Do you use new disposable ink caps and razors for each client?

  • Do you clean and disinfect all equipment and surfaces?

  • Do you wash your hands and wear single-use disposable gloves?

  • Do you cover new tattoos with a protective bandage?

  • Do you give written after-care instructions?

See a doctor if your tattoo becomes hot, red, and painful.
