Your Personal Safety 
Is Our #1 Concern At No Name Tattoo

First Things First

We use new pre-sterilized one time use needles for every procedure

 

"We exceed all State of Michigan health requirements & exceed the CDC guidelines for autoclave sterilization"


The sterilization equipment at No Name Tattoo as never failed a safety test since we have opened (Since 2007!).

All tools used in the tattooing or piercing process are sanitized in a 4 part process. 
 

First: an ultrasonic cleaning unit removes all debris from the tool. 

Second: Tools are submersed in a germicidal solution to soak for at least 2 hours. 

Third: tools are then manually washed, scrubbed, and rinsed. 

forth: Tools are then autoclave sterilized.

This is the same procedure followed at dental labs and small surgical clinics


We conduct weekly spore testing on our autoclave. This ensures that our sterilizer is actually doing its job properly.

We have been doing this since we opened, before it was a requirement.  We also do testing at three times the rate that is legally required.
Our equipment has never failed a safety test.

Our safety testing is done by an local lab and our records are available for your inspection upon request. We can also provide you with the companies contact information to check it out for yourself.  Our most recent test results are always posted in the lobby on the front board. 

We also run in-house sterilization load testing for each load we process.   This gives us real time information about the health of our equiptment.

Every surface in the tattooing and piercing rooms are sanitized with an operating room disinfectant before each client and after each client leaves

We believe in informed consent. Everything you need to know regarding safety, tools to be used, aftercare, and risks involved are gone over BEFORE the procedure is done. 

You are always welcome and encouraged to ask questions.  We never take shortcuts or chances when it comes to your safety.

All of our records are open to you for your inspection.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q:  What are the risks involved with tattooing?

A:  Like anything in life there are risks.   Risks of getting a tattoo include infection (if aftercare is not followed), fainting or dizziness, scarring and keloiding over the surface, allergic reactions to ink or disinfecting supplies, and difficulty detecting skin cancer at the site of the tattoo.   What the risks being stated, they are very unlikely to occur during your tattoo.  If you have concerns it is best to check with your doctor.

Q:  What are the risks involved with body piercing?

A:  Like anything in life there are risks.   Risks of getting a tattoo include infection (if aftercare is not followed), fainting or dizziness, scarring and keloiding over the surface, allergic reactions to jewelry or disinfecting supplies, and difficulty detecting skin cancer at the site of the piercing.   With the risks being stated, they are very unlikely to occur during your body piercing.  If you have concerns it is best to check with your doctor.

Q:  What is a "safety test?"

A:  When we use the term Safety Test we really mean a Biological Spore Test.  Every week we process a package that is known to be contaminated with (harmless) bacteria along with a regular load of tools.  This test is then mailed into a lab and they examine the test to see if any live bacterial growth is present.  A "passed" test means that the bacteria was eliminated.   Before visiting a new tattoo or body piercing studio ask to examine their spore tests for several months prior to make sure their equipment is operating properly.  

Q:  How do you disinfect hard surfaces, studio chairs?

A:  We saturate the surface in a operating room grade disinfectant before and after each client.   We also utilize plastic barrier films, and tray liners in addition to using CDC approved disinfectants.   We do not use "bleach wipes" or drug store disinfectants.  

Q:  I have other questions...

A:  Feel free to stop into the studio of your choice and ask.   Studio employees, including artists, and our support staff  will have the knowledge to answer these questions, and will be able to take you on a tour of the clean room.   You may also contact the Macomb County Health Department, or visit www.Michigan.gov/bodyart
