Anko only uses disposable tattoo equipment. This means that all equipment that is in direct contact with the customer is thrown away after use. All inks that I use are approved by European Regulations & also in Norway too. Anko has strict protocols on cleanliness before, during and after a tattoo.
YOU ARE REQUIRED to state whether there are conditions that may increase the risk of infection, and that may justify extended hygienic measures. If you have a permanent / impaired immune system, skin diseases, allergies or diseases that can be transmitted through blood, you must inform your tattoo artist about this.
IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS YOU MUST TAKE: During the tattoo, do not scratch or touch the tattoo and the equipment used. Should you accidentally touch the tattoo or equipment, you must inform your tattoo artist immediately.
WEAR AREAS: Tattoos on places such as hands, fingers, feet, knees and elbows are areas where ink will wear away. Finishing these places is also challenging, and the end result rarely ends up nicely. These places can be repainted for a fee.
REMEMBER: Everyone reacts differently to ink, some are more receptive than others. How you treat your tattoo and how careful you are and weather or not following the aftercare advice will play a big role on the healing result of your tattoo. As there is so many individual reasons why it does not always heal as expected, Anko is a very skilled artist with many years of experience and hundred of healed works.
Always have in mind that there is a possibility that your skin will not heal your tattoo perfectly.
