Safety Precautions

When you get a new tattoo, nothing is more important than a clean and safe procedure with sterile equipment.  We use all disposable items such as one time use needles, tubes, ink caps, stencils, etc. The safety of our clients and employees is our number one priority.

All artists are permitted through the New Hanover County Health Dept. and trained in cross contamination prevention through Bloodborne Pathogens training.


Cleanliness after you leave is important to prevent any environmental issues that may arise while healing.  Follow the healing instructions given by your artist and you won't have any problems.  If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact your artist directly or through our shop number (910-254-1288).
