Sterilization Care

  • All equipments are sterilized in a state-of-the-art autoclave (a pressurized steamed sterilization unit).
  • A frequent misconception is the color-changing strip on the sterile pouches. This strip changes color to give a visual indication that it has been exposed to a certain temperature only.
  • Sterilizing an instrument takes the proper temperature, pressure, AND time.
  • To ensure that all instruments are properly sterilized, we use a Vapor Line steam sterilization integrator strip during every sterilization process to ensure that the correct temperature, pressure, and time have been achieved.
  • Monthly spores testing are also done to ensure that the autoclave unit is free of spores or other hazardous materials.
  • We use brand new, disposable needles for every customer. Our ink and color are also one-use only. They are dispensed into individual tiny cups and disposed off after every tattoo
