If you want a tattoo, you can cut corners and end up with some ink you regret forever, or you could go to a place like Rich Ink in Van Nuys. At Rich Ink, hygiene is a top priority: the studio and all equipment is 100% clean, disposable needles are changed for each tat, and each artist is trained in safety procedures including using disinfectant and wearing latex gloves, masks and disposable aprons while they apply ink. They even have a cleaning crew come in every single night and detail every nook and cranny to ensure Rich Ink is completely sterile. Quality is another top priority. Their artists are experienced, professional, and extraordinarily creative. They can take whatever crazy idea you have for a tat and turn it into reality. Rich Ink also does piercings and permanent makeup.
