Is it safe?

Before getting a tattoo, check that it is performed in a reputable studio like ours under sanitary conditions by a trained and licensed artist who follows proper sterilization procedures and takes other precautions such as wearing gloves, face masks, etc. A good artist should be able explain the procedure and demonstrate what will happen without making you feel like you’re asking too many questions.
