We understand the cause of concern, although there were chances of getting hepatitis C from tattoos decades ago, but this is something all professionals are very conscious of nowadays. If new needles are used for each and every customer, there is no chance of contracting a blood-borne disease. Therefore if you visit RIP Tattoos where proper tattoo equipment is used, getting a tattoo is very safe. Customer satisfaction is our upmost priority so our tattoo artists will be glad to set your mind at rest by showing you the unopened package of needles they will be using before the tattooing begins. After your tattoo is finished, used needles are disposed of.
