We're Clean


With the popularity of tattoos on the rise, new tattoo studios are opening up on a regular basis. Unfortunately, there are no regulations set in place to govern these studios.

When you are thinking about getting your next tattoo, it's important to remember that it's up to you to do the research, and then pick a studio and an artist that will do the work you want in a clean and safe environment.

At Scarab Body Arts, we use a completely disposable setup. Everything is individually packaged, used once, and thrown out. Even our tattoo tubes, which most studios sterilize and reuse, are disposed of after a single use to ensure the safest method of tattooing.
