Most tattoo shops re-use equipment with the use of an autoclave or other on-site sterilization. Not us! We go far beyond the standard sanitary methods and instead insist on the best. We use single use, disposable supplies to exceed health department standards. Not many shops can say that.
While in-house autoclave is the minimum standard for health department approval, there is still room for error if done improperly and not tested monthly. At Aloha Salt Lake Tattoos, we go a step further, we are completely disposable! Meaning that the equipment we use to perform each tattoo is used only once and then sent off in bio-hazard containers never to be used again. We feel this is the best way to ensure our customers a completely sanitary tattoo. Yes, it is quite a bit more expensive to do this, but you and your tattoo are worth it to us. We truly care about your health and safety when it comes to each tattoo.
Each artist at Aloha Salt Lake Tattoos has gone through formal training and adheres to the strict Aloha Salt Lake code of conduct at all times when at the shop. We strive to make each tattoo experience individualized and informative.
We strive to make your experience memorable, but also informative. We are dedicated to telling you the negatives as well as the positives about getting tattooed. We won't influence your decision, but we also wont let you make a poor decision either. We aren't that shop that will just allow you to get what-ever you want as long as you have the cash. We want you to be informed about your choice of placement and want to ensure that you know the consequences of certain tattoos.
Our open and honest policy has helped hundreds of people steer clear of potential problem tattoos and instead turn them into amazing pieces that each client can enjoy for a lifetime without any problems that sometimes arise when a tattoo is improperly placed, or a meaning that is unknown comes out when showing it off.
We know our stuff, and we'll share our experience with you. We will ensure that you make the best decisions possible so that the outcome is something that you will absolutely love for the rest of your life.
We offer privacy for anyone that feels uncomfortable. We don't want you to feel like anyone you don't approve of is looking at you while you are getting your tattoo.
It's was missing from the Salt Lake Valley for too long... Aloha Salt Lake Tattoos; The spirit of ALOHA. A tattoo shop that cares about what you want from your tattoo experience; but also cares about your health and safety.
