A Detailed Guide to Tattoo Hygiene and Safety

by Lisa Huffington tattoobloglove
Unlike surgeries, tattooing is not, unfortunately, a sterilised procedure. The tattoo artists do not work in a room with iodine disinfectants and HEPA filters. But it could be a clean procedure or a procedure free of germs if one agrees to adhere to the internationally recognised hygiene standards. For further details, please check out the given discussion right now.

Clean the Workstation

The experts working for the Vietnam tattoo parlours emphasised the significance of separating their workstations from the lounge area. The former is where tattooing actually takes place, while the latter is where the customers wait.

The tattoo area must be thoroughly wiped with cleansing solutions and then covered with a disposable wrap. One must change the wrap after a customer leaves because it will have leftover ink, plasma, dead skin cells, etc.

The artists must hang their cleaning policies, license, and certifications they got for maintaining hygiene right above their workstations. These enable them to win the trust of the clientele.
A to Z Hygiene

Before Tattooing

  • The experts with tattoo shops open said they disinfect all the devices, surfaces, and materials prior to working.
  • They cover the tattoo chair, table, and other associated furniture with a transparent film.
  • They unpack the needles, ink caps, and razors right in front of the customer.
  • During Tattooing
  • Several tattoo artists nowadays use a disposable tattoo pen that contains ingredients approved by the Cosmetics Regulation Board.
  • The artists clean the skin and then apply the stencil that has been thoroughly sterilised before.

They then start inking the design with grips and needle modules.

After Tattooing

  • The artists specify aftercare instructions depending on the location and the size of the tattoo.
  • They then dispose of all the materials used in the dustbins. The sharp tools are disposed of separately.
  • The entire workplace is cleaned and disinfected.


The experts working for the Vietnam tattoo parlours have acquired widespread popularity probably because they are trained in all the current hygiene legislation and guidelines.  A tattoo artist must also be acquainted with first-aid. He/she needs to wear high-grade gloves, aprons, and face masks under all circumstances.


Although most of the tattoo equipment cannot be reused, there are a few that could be recycled. The ink bottles are returned to the manufacturing unit. Several studios have developed a sustainable recycling strategy through which a large segment of recyclable materials are reused to mould injections.

Besides comprehensive inspections performed by health authorities, a tattoo studio is audited and declared safe every year by different independent, external hygiene institutes for utmost safety. The staff constantly analyses and optimizes the processes internally to retain the existing customers and drive abundant traffic beyond geographical boundaries.

Almost all the modern-day studios aim to make the tattooing session safe as well as memorable. The artists, dermatologists, and hygiene professionals exert a substantial amount of effort to make a mere concept a lively design. They keep infections at bay by complying with the strict regulations stated above that go way beyond the statutory requirements.
