For a long, long time, tattoos were only something a small minority of people had, and the only body part people pierced was their ears. Today, piercings and tattoos are everywhere, especially here in Oz. But like most things in life, tattoos and piercings come with a risk factor…
Tattoos are a great and popular form of self-expression, but if you want to get a tattoo, you should always go to a respected and professional tattoo artist. Here at Chapel Street, we have all the necessary licenses in Health & Safety, so you know there’s no chance of us skipping hygiene procedures or putting you at unnecessary risk. Luckily tattoos and piercings are safer than ever, but before visiting us, you should still do your homework. If you’ve any concerns about getting a tattoo then we’ll be happy to sit down with you and have a chat. Our friendly artists will answer any questions or worries you may have, especially if it’s your first tattoo.
So let’s say you’ve been working on a cool design and saving up for your first tattoo. You’re all excited and you’ve been looking forward to this for ages. For the love of god don’t go round to your mate’s house! Just because he was good at art at school and bought a tattoo gun off eBay, doesn’t mean he’s a tattoo artist! It’s unsafe and let’s be honest, you’re probably not going to be happy with his ‘masterpiece’.
Getting a tattoo from unsterile equipment and inexperienced artists can put you, and the artist, at risk for life-threatening infectious diseases. Hepatitis or skin infections can be caused by certain bacteria, so make sure you come to a tattoo studio that’s professional with a good reputation. A tattoo studio that has a long list of satisfied customers. A tattoo studio that has been doing this for years.
A tattoo studio like Chapel Street Tattoo.
