Vegan tattoos

Vegan tattooing
I try my best to use only vegan materials and supplies in the tattooing process. The inks, stencil paper, stencil stuff, soaps, ointments, sprays, cleaning supplies etc. are all vegan. 
I try my best to find the vegan alternative for everything. I am always educating myself on the materials I use and their origins.

To ensure hygienic conditions during the tattooing process it’s best to use disposable materials. Almost all the materials I use in my tattooing process are disposable. I use disposable gloves, stencils, needles, plastic wraps, water cups, ink cups, razors, tapes, grip tape and papers. The tattoo machine, power unit, cords, soap bottles and furniture are reusable. I clean and desinfect these reusable supplies always after and before the tattooing process. During the tattooing process I protect them with plastic. 

I clean all the surfaces before and after tattooing with Desinfektol.
I wash my hands thoroughly with water and soap and use hand desinfectant. I touch the client’s skin only while wearing nitrile gloves.
