Some privacy for tattooing women

Some women would like to have a little privacy, so it is a good idea to keep a spare tube top handy for them, so they don’t get any ink on their clothes. Many women will ask for a private session for more privacy.

An office chair on wheels can be used to move around easily to get in different positions. It may or may not have arms on it, has an adjustable back rest and the height should be adjustable also. Armrests work good for steadying the hand while tattooing.
A folding chair can be used for the customer to sit in. A front rail between the two front legs makes a good foot brace for the tattoo artist when working on an ama tattoo. Some like to work off their lap and find it handy to brace elbows on their leg while doing a bicep, forearm or ankle.
To do a back piece, have them sit facing the back of the folding chair with one leg through the opening in the back so they don’t have to spread their legs so far apart. This position is easier for the artist as long as the tattoo is on the upper part of the back. A pillow under the Customer’s arms draped over the back of the chair will make it more comfortable. If the piece is too low down on the back to do comfort-ably in a sitting position, lay them down on a weight bench. The weight bench works well for chest pieces, stomachs, legs and backsides. You should move the customer where you can reach them best, and still have the ink, sprays and paper towels within easy reach. Then adjust the light so you can see well.
This Outline is a basic set-up to get you started. It is the duty of every tattooist to familiarize themselves with this, then take over where this chapter has left off, customizing the área to suit their own needs.

Guideline to get started for tatttooing

This list is not totally complete, but it is a good guideline to get you started. Few people can purchase it all at once and must slowly put it together. Don’t be fright-ened by the long list, all the equipment is quite small and portable. Compared to other businesses, this list is pretty simple and not as expensive as some practices can be. Buying in order of importance and practicality first seems to be a smart direction to follow.
Tattooists must have an organized área around them for any kind of efficient work. The universal approach is a work table in front of the worker for proper and easy location of Ítems. You may make the table, but the best and most professional one you can afford would be a wiser choice. It’s important to make sure it is fíat, sits sturdy, and is easy to clean and keep clean. It should also be large enough to hold everything you will need. It is advisable to have a knee cutout in the front of the table (rather then solid) so the customer on some occasions can get right up cióse to the table to keep your reaching to a minimum. A standard table is about 20 inches wide, 48 inches long and a comfortable height off the ground. The top can be fórmica, finished hardwood or preferably stainless steel or glass. A small sink with hot and cold faueets should be mounted in the top off to the side. Sit in a chair beside the sink, facing the farther end of the table so the sink will be on your right side. If you are left handed, everything will be the opposite.
Everything should be within easy reach. The things used most often should be located the closest to you, and the Ítems used less often are located further away. The items used the most are things like caps full of ink, the carbolated vaseline and the spray bottle of green soap. Also, the lamp and paper towels should be within easy reach. Slightly further back, but stül within easy reach, is the spray bottle of alcohol, extra ink caps, three washes to clean the ink out of tubes when colors are changed, going from the first distilled water to the second distilled water to the alcohol last. A little further back are bandage supplies, extra needle bars, tubes and inks, with machine rack just barely within reach to hold spare tattoo machines or another machine with a different set-up. One for outlines and one for shading and coloring.

Tools for tattooing

This chapter is a materials list and their descriptions for the tools of the trade the beginning tattooist is going to need to start out. By no means a complete checklist, it will still itemize the basic tools of tattooing and the tattooist will no doubt add and subtract from this list as their experience warrants. Please don’t get confused by reading this, because each item will eventually be discussed in more detail in some other section of this blog.
After you’ve read this book several times, all of these Ítems will tie themselves in and start to make sense. A materials list for the tattooist to consider would read something like this, not necessarily in the order of importance:
Shop Furniture Work Table — A médium size table (linoleum or glass top for easier cleaning) to
hold items needed while tattooing. Chair — For the tattooist. Should be comfortable. Some prefer rollers to get around. You can spend a lot of time in this. Customer Chair — A comfortable chair for clients to sit in while their tattoo is being done. Lifter Bench — Common weight lifting bench for clients to stretch out on
while doing back or legs. Foot Stool — For the tattooist’s foot to give him elevation for those who do fore
arm type work or balance the tattoo arm on the knee.
Bench Equipment Adjustable Table Light — To get a good look at what you are doing from all
angles. (Do not use fluorescent light.) Paper Towels and Dispenser — For a variety of purposes from wiping ink up to cleaning tattoos.

Sterilizers
“Stericlave” Autoclave — For sterile dressings and equipment. This is a must. Wayne Dri-Clave — Table top. Sterilizer pouches to check sterilizing. Ultrasonic Cleaner — Cleans all residue from tubes, needles, etc. Ultrasonic Solution — For use with Ultrasonic Cleaner. Ultrasonic Tray and Machine Holder — Submersible tray to hold tools in
while in the Ultrasonic Cleaner. Machine Rack — To hold machines while not in use. Contains test tubes
for machines. Benz-All — A germicidal solution that is non-rusting. This does not sterilize,
but keeps sterile equipment clean. For use in machine test tubes.
