What is a tattoo?
A tattoo is the permanent colouring, usually in the form of a design, of the second layer of skin (dermis) and it is achieved by pricking the skin and applying permanent inks under the surface
It’s a tattoo, not a taboo!
People get tattoos for a variety of reasons, but most of all it’s considered a form of self-expression. Each tattoo should ideally have some emotions attached to it. There is usually a certain connection between a person and his tattoo and that is the reason why people hold their tattoos so close to themselves. There have been certain taboos related to tattoos, but that was in the past, when people considered anything out of the usual as ‘abnormal’. It’s a whole different story today! Tattoos are made using the best tattoo machines and proper hygiene and sterilization procedures are followed so that there is less pain, no infection and the tattoos are detailed, precise and beautiful. All kinds of people, from various walks of life like bankers, lawyers, politicians, doctors, engineers, IT professionals, builders etc come into our studio to get tattoos! Tattoos are no longer considered a ‘biker guy’s’ thing.
Tattoos have come a long way from the time that they were done by some guy sitting on the road to professional artists with proper knowledge and training, making tattoos in clean hygienic studios.
Chances of infection are very rare if proper hygiene and other precautions are taken care of before, while and after getting a tattoo. There are standards set out by The Alliance of Professional Tattooists. Body Canvas adheres to these rules. Here are some things to check for:
It’s very important to make sure the tattoo studio is clean and safe, and that all equipment used is disposable (in the case of needles, gloves, masks, colour etc.) and sterilized.
Make sure the tattoo studio has an autoclave (a device that uses steam, pressure, and heat for sterilization). You are allowed to watch as equipment is sterilized in the autoclave.
