Catfish wrote:These guys that have mobile tattoo parlors are very successful tattoo shop owners from their respective towns. These tattoo trailers are constantly under the scrutiny of their hometown health departments, and if our health department is doing their job, also inspected here.This guy in a trailer, as you say, is not in a homemade ice shack on wheels. That trailer is about $30,000 dollars worth and if you were to step inside you would find out it is so well maintained and clean that you'd be able to eat off the floor. They are air conditioned so the doors can stay shut to not allow dust from the lot in. They don't even use an autoclave, as every customer gets a brand new set of needles right out of a sealed package. The only way a person could get an infection is after they leave and don't keep the sight clean or allow dust to enter the fresh tattoo. Don't judge until you inspect.

If you can draw, you ought to think about running one your self. That guy does about 5 bike rallies a year; Laughlin California, Sturgis, Daytona bike week, and our Fall Ride, and Iowa Bike Rally. Now furthering the math, $600,000 thousand a year. That guy in the "trailer" is funny.

Deb Richardson wrote:You would also be surprised to know that at times, not in any office I've worked in, that sterilization procedures fail, unbeknownst to the operator. Not all reputable medical or dental facilities are up to date on infection control procedure.
Deb Richardson wrote:You would also be surprised to know that the guy in the trailer doing tats is watched more closely by health officials than most medical and dental clinics, due to the nature of that business.
Deb Richardson wrote:In nearly 20 years of working in the dental field not once have I ever seen any type of inspection other than by the local fire department. The only time OSHA or any other agency would do an inspection is if there were to be a complaint or an incident.
I know that the offices I've worked in are strict and responsible when it comes to monitoring sterilization equipment, keeping up to date on the latest infection control methods, and practicing infection control to the highest of standards. But not once has any agency ever inspected or questioned these procedures.
I'm not saying that failed sterilization can't happen with the guy doing tats in a trailer, but I do know he's being watched far closer than the dental office I work in.
Deb Richardson wrote:Like I posted earlier within the biker community the word is out who to and who not to trust for a healthy tat. These artists,yes they are considered artists, have a livelihood to maintain, nothing takes that livelihood away like making people sick and going to jail. Maintaining a sanitary environment is very important to them.
