The workspace of a tattoo parlor, or shop must be kept as clean as possible. Take some time to set up your shop, so that all the tools will be in your reach.
A shop would have the basics: (1) A clean floor, no carpet, tile is preferred. It can be cleaned and disinfected quite easily; carpet is a breeding ground for viruses and germs. (2) A sink with running water...for hand washing, equipment washing. (3) A comfortable chair for you and for your client, footstools, tables, barber chairs, dentist chairs, whatever fits your needs. (4) A worktable, something big enough to hold all your supplies, and equipment. (5) Lighting is very important, good light can make or break a tattoo. (6) Equipment: Autoclave, or dry heat sterilizer, ultra sonic cleaner, tattoo machine, power supply, thermal transfer stencil maker (optional), impulse heat sealer,
This list is just some of the major equipment needed for professional results.
