Because this industry involves the use of needles to get the job done for their clients, they must also comply with safe handling and disposal of the waste they produce. Not just the sharps, but also blood soaked gauze and other materials all fall under waste that needs to be disposed of following compliance rules.
In addition to sharps containers for all of the needles tattoo shops are using, they must also properly dispose of items like piercing needles, protective gloves, cotton swabs, ink caps, ointments, face masks and more from their locations.
