Tattoo Safety Checklist

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.

Information for tattoo artists can be found in our employers section.
