Electric Vintage is environmental health registered and maintains the highest standards of hygiene. The studio has a brand new (January 2014) high specification Enigma 17 print autoclave and ultrasonic cleaner in line with current legislation. As would be expected, brand new needles are used for every tattoo. All equipment is autoclaved after each use and autoclaves are serviced and spore tested regularly - so put simply - hygiene equipment is maintained and tested on a regular basis. Furthermore, as per recent hygiene legislation the studio has a separate sterilization area to prevent any possible risk of cross contamination.
Tattoo Artists use only fresh inks of the highest market specification, which are poured into new disposable ink caps. No surplus ink is at any time re-used. Tattoo Artists wear gloves at all times and make multiple glove changes per client as necessary. Any item that may be touched during the tattoo process is covered in disposable plastic film to avoid the possibility of cross-contamination and all surfaces are thoroughly cleaned with Trigene disinfectant after each client. The same thorough hygiene procedures are administered throughout all piercing and lasering procedures.
