What are some things I should ask my artist to ensure my safety?

Ask your artist if they use an autoclave or if they use all disposable equipment. If they use an autoclave, you can ask to see the spore testing results to ensure the autoclave is tested monthly and is working properly. If the body artist says they use all disposable equipment, make sure they open new disposable body art equipment for your procedure.
