Yes and for several reasons!  Firstly, I’m a very experienced tattoo artist and have tattooed extensively just about every part of the body that can be tattooed…yes, really.  I intuitively understand every skin type and every area of the body in a way that can only be understood with time and lots and lots of tattoos.  I started my career in a beauty salon and spent 6 years in the beauty industry doing cosmetic tattoos before I switched over to body art and have been doing that also since 2009.  I also have Bachelor of Fine Art in Studio Painting & Drawing from the University of North Texas.

        I also use universal precautions for all procedures.  That means that I assume disease is present and act accordingly with sanitation, disinfection and sterilization in accordance with the Center for Disease Control, the Texas State Health Department and OSHA Bloodborne Pathogen standards. I only use disposable needles and tubes that are pre-sterilized and disposed of after every client.

        I also only use Ever After Pigments whose formula is based off of a 30 year old formula that has been used globally without reaction or color change.  They only use the highest quality pigment and do not use any dyes, additives, or solvents. Ever After Pigments are also PH balanced and EU approved which surpasses US standards.
