What a Procedure Looks Like

Here’s what you can expect from a normal tattooing procedure:

  • The tattoo artist will first wash his or her hands with a germicidal soap.
  • The to-be-tattooed area on your body will be cleaned and disinfected.
  • The tattoo artist will put on clean, fresh gloves (and possibly a surgical mask).
  • The tattoo artist will explain the sterilization procedure to you and open up the single-use, sterilized equipment (such as needles, etc.).
  • Using the tattoo machine (with a sterile, single-use needle attached), the tattoo artist will begin drawing an outline of the tattoo under your skin.
  • The outline will be cleaned with antiseptic soap and water.
  • Sterile, thicker needles will be installed on the tattoo machine, and the tattoo artist will start shading the design.
  • After cleaning the area again, color will be injected.
  • Any blood will be removed by a sterile, disposable cloth or towel.
  • When finished, the area, now sporting a finished tattoo, will be cleaned once again and a bandage will be applied.

What you should know if you decided to do a tattoo

If you’re thinking about getting a tattoo, there is one very important thing you have to keep in mind — getting it done safely. Remember a tattoo is at risk for infections and disease.

It’s very important to make sure the tattoo studio is clean and safe, and that all equipment used is disposable (in the case of needles, gloves, masks, etc.) and sterilized (everything else).

Here is a link to tattoo masters’ contacts in Almaty: http://vkontakte.ru/board.php?act=t&tid=7597773&oid=-1668512
