I had some stuff a few years back with no problems, not sure on their policy now, best bet would be to place an online order, the worse they can do is refuse you and refund you.

Same just happened to me! Gave me a refund. Its gutting, they got some great stuff at good prices. I can understand why they only sell to registered premises though.

I placed an order for Eternal ink , silicone grips, wash bottles etc and it got delivered no problem. Maybe it's only a problem if you order needles. Or maybe try ordering under a business name rather than your own name.

i have ordered from here recently, you can order from there as long as there isnt any sharps, needles/piercing needles for example, as some air brush artists use tattoo ink, flows very well (from what i have heard), and anyone can buy health and cleaning products, wash bottles etc are also not a problem, or you could ask a fellow artist or friend to use his studio address :)

this is the kind of thing i was talking about in diff post, i hate this kind of thing you could get around it by saying you are a machine builder thats what EIKON did with me till they did all my shop info and passed it,

As an ethical supplier we are trying to reduce the number of people who are buying tattoo equipment and tattooing at home without any training which is the reason we ask for health registration. This ensures that you have the minimum knowledge of cleaning and sterilization of equipment. There are a number of products you are able to buy without registration but we do not sell tattoo machines and tattoo needles to anyone without health registration. I am sure you understand our reasons.

Thank you for taking the time to post, could you briefly say what you would be prepared to sell to unregistered tattooists, I for one have purchased gloves and cleaning items from you before but stopped when it became known that you would not sell to unregistered tattooists full stop.
