As there are no standards in Thailand for Tattoo Studios, it is important to be aware of the essential equipment and supplies that are required to create a safe and sterile tattoo.
Taz Tattoo operates to Australian Standards, and use the following equipment and supplies...
The Bio Hazard Bin is used to dispose of used needles and other items during the tattooing process.
When full, the contents are incinerated.
Derma Numb Tattoo Anesthetic Spray allows you to get your tattoo in comfort without the pain.
Derma Numb works in 90 seconds, is safe on all skin types, is anti-inflammatory, and will not affect color tattoos or the healing process.
The Tattoo Artist wears gloves while applying the tattoo.
It is not uncommon for the Tattoo Artist to go through multiple pairs of gloves during one sitting.
Grips are used by the Tattoo Artist to hold the gun.
Most Tattoo Artists have a vast selection of grips.
Taz Tattoo uses disposable "Single Use" pre-sterilized tubes and tips.
These are used to align the needle within the gun.
Hustle Butter is a 100% vegan replacement for all petroleum based products (such as Vaseline).
Hustle Butter is used as a lubricant before, during, and after the tattoo process.
Made from mango, coco, papaya, and other shea butters, Hustle Butter gives results that last a lifetime.
Taz Tattoo uses Fusion Ink sourced from Australian Tattoo Suplies, based in Melbourne Victoria Australia.
Fusion Ink is the choice of world renowned Tattoo Artists.
Plastic wrap is applied to all work surfaces, including the Tattoo Artistís work station, spray bottles, ink bottles, arm rests, etc.
This prevents possible cross-contamination. Completed tattoos may also be wrapped in plastic to prevent staining of clothing.
Tattoo Goo is a light but effective lotion that helps in the tattoo healing process.
Combining the latest technology the with world's most recommended ingredients, Tattoo Goo uses quality pumice grade olive oil and antioxidant rich vitamin E to help speed the skin healing process.
The triglycerides and wax esters in olive oil are natureís ultimate moisturizers.
Tatoo Goo revitalizes colour tattoos, and provides great care for older tattoos as well as new.
The Tattoo Gun is the machine used by the Tattoo Artist to create the tattoo.
Traditional guns use electromagnetic coils to move the needle up and down, while newer guns use a rotary motor.
The gun is connected to a power supply and a foot pedal.
Tattoo needles come in a variety of sizes.
Outlines are usually completed using RL needles, typically 3 RL to 9 RL.
Shading is usually done with MAGS needles, with typical sizes being 7 MAG to 25 MAG.
Most clients find the larger needles to be less painful.
All needles used by Taz Tattoo are new and sealed.
Used needles are disposed of in the Bio Hazard Bin after use.
