What the photo isn't able to show you is that each machine IS autoclaved between uses (they have more than one per artist, dear). When the artists aren't busy with a client, they are busy cleaning equipment.On the pictures, he does he not practice proper cross-contamination by putting a bag on the machine and cord. You can't tell me that he takes his machine apart and cleans it thoroughly after every tattoo. I have a hard time letting pictures like this represent us as a tattoo community as a whole. Get you machines bagged Nolan!
Now, about that practice of bagging the machine and cord, I hope that *your* shop doesn't do that rather than use a clean machine for each use!
