Must know before doing a new Tattoo
  • Tattoos are the only thing, you can take to the grave

    Tattooing the skin has been done throughout history and remains a popular form of body decoration today.

    If you are considering getting a tattoo, it is important to have a good think about it before going ahead. Always choose a tattooist whose business is registered with their local council to minimise the risks of complications.

    People may get tattoos for many reasons, including:
    1) cultural traditions
    2) to show membership of a group
    3) as an expression of individuality
    4) to mark a significant event, such as the death of a loved one or the birth of a child.

    Complications of tattooing

    Choosing a registered, experienced tattooist can help reduce the risk of complications. However, getting a tattoo can still put you at risk of:
    1) infections, such blood-borne viruses
    2) allergic reactions
    3) thick scars.
    If the tattoo extends over a mole, it may make it more difficult to identify any changes in colour or size or any other changes that occur to the mole. While a tattoo will not increase the chance of a mole becoming cancerous, it is important to be aware that a tattoo may obscure any changes that might occur.

    Another possible reaction is that you may become distressed after the procedure, due to regret at getting the tattoo. This has been identified as one of the major problems involved with tattoos.

    Choosing a tattooist

    Choose an experienced tattooist whose business is registered with their local council. A certificate of registration should be made available for you to see. Make sure the tattoo premises you choose looks clean and professional.

    Check that the tattooist uses single-use and sterile equipment for each client, or thoroughly cleans and disinfects their equipment before use, by putting it through a steriliser. If a premises looks dodgy, trust your judgement and keep away.

    Don’t be afraid to ask questions about the tattooist’s experience and procedures. If they do not answer your questions, or you are not satisfied or comfortable with them, do not feel pressured – take your business elsewhere.

    To comply with health regulations:
    1) The premises must be kept clean and hygienic.
    2) Instruments and needles must be sterile at the time of use.
    3) The operator should not have exposed cuts or wounds, and their clothes must be clean.
    4) The proprietor or operator must provide you with health information before any procedure is done.
    The ideal tattoo premises should have:
    1) good ventilation and lighting
    2) a separate area set aside for the cleaning, disinfection and sterilisation of instruments
    3) benches, floors, shelving and furniture that can easily be kept clean – items that may need to be touched (such as spray and ink bottles) should be covered with single-use plastic bags so that only the nozzles are exposed
    4) a hand washbasin.
