I use sterile new single needles, tweezers, measuring tape and pencils. The equipment is covered with a disposable coverer each client, the couch is sterilised then covered with single couch roll, and my personal protective wear is single use and disposable. All pigments I use are formulated from natural minerals, are safe, non-toxic, hypo-allergenic and have CE European approval. Technicians are required by law to register to local council for a licence to practice. A licence is only granted if the premises and technician meet the standards of cleanliness and hygiene laid down by the city councils bylaws.
