Frequently Asked Questions
How do you guys sterilize your jewelry/equipment?
Our sterilization process consists of several steps to ensure complete decontamination of all equipment and jewelry.
First, all tools are hand scrubbed to remove any debris, and then they are run through an Ultrasonic to remove microscopic debris. Once the tools have finished in the Ultrasonic, they are placed in a steam autoclave with an indicator strip for 30 minutes. During this time, the equipment is under immense pressure and heat, killing off all remaining contaminates. Once this cycle is finished, the tools are stored until needed.
All of our jewelry is brand new and has never been worn. Once our client chooses their jewelry, it is placed in a Statim vacuum steam autoclave, along with any clean tools, indicator strips, and new needles that are to be used for the procedure. This is a critical step, as a traditional steam autoclave works for objects that are not hollow; however, it CAN’T penetrate hollow pieces, such as the entire length of the inside of the needle or receiving tube. Our Statim vacuum steam autoclave removes all the air, allowing the steam to penetrate through 100% of all hollow objects, which guarantees total sterilization.
It is also worth mentioning that our needles are some of the highest quality and sharpest available, but most importantly, they are single-use. Each and every needle is used once, and only once, then immediately disposed of.
All of our tattoo artists use 100% single-use, disposable setups that come pre-sterilized.
