    Hi paul,
    prior to doing a tat,i clean the floor with normal disinfectant........I have a stainless steel 3 tier trolley,that i work from,this gets cleaned down with the green soap mixture first,then wiped over with a dettol wipe,when setting up the trolley,the top shelf is covered with a sheet of foil,which gets the same treatment,when finished everything gets rolled up in the foil & binned,i also clean the seats same way & also the massage table if used,(all of my seating has been re-upholstered in black vinyl,so it can be cleaned) i also use couch roll.The most important thing is to have clean hands & gloves for everything,i ware gloves to set up,then clean gloves for tattooing....i use hand gel in between glove changes...DO NOT USE POWDERED GLOVES.......I also cover the front of the power supply with cling film & use clip cord covers.

    Thanks Reaper,

    Some useful info here - tbh the blood borne pathogens are the major thing that stopped me wanting to tattoo for years! Now with disposable equipment and good hygiene control it's a lot safer. These days you have to protect yourself - health wise and legally! I am thinking of registering myself eventually and got some info. It's approximately £300 for the business and £65 for personal registration. The department of health come out and check you and your work environment over and offer help and advice. There are no formal qualifications for tattooing - and it's less of a risk than piercing. I'll keep you updated if I decide/ when I decide to do it. I am sure a lot of it is just good common sense - especially when you look at some food businesses- it's easier to kill someone with food than a bad tattoo!
