Safety is number 1 at StudioMaxx. Like every needle, either for piercing or tattooing is single use and is pre-sterilized or sterilized on site. All piercing and tattoo instruments go through an intensive cleaning procedure before they are ready to reuse. We adhere to the strictest guidelines where safety is concerned. We want you to feel at ease with us, if you don't then we're not doing our job properly. Here at Studio Maxx we like to stay up to date with new products available for tattooing and piercing clients. Like our new product called Saniderm it's your complete aftercare in a clear bandage no scabs or having to use aftercare products and It is free with every tattoo done with us. If you have any question please feel free to give us a call at 709-738-3553.
