Generally speaking, after the tattooing is complete, the artist will clean and apply a thin layer of ointment and a bandage will be applied.

Please be aware we don’t not use piecing guns is our shop. We use disposable needles for each client. Ear piercing boutiques and retail stores are not licensed to conduct any form of piercing, but due to a loop hole in most municipal licensing policies, they are more often licensed for "retail sales", which means they are never inspected by the local health units for safety and sterilization procedures. If you are considering getting anything pierced at the mall or plaza you may want to keep this in mind, they are no safer than you attempting to pierce your ears in the bathroom with a safety pin.
