Disposable Tattoo Tubes- Advantages and Disadvantages

Posted by Tattoo Station on

Here at Tattoo Station we only use and sell disposable tattoo tubes.

Having been in the tattoo industry for many years, we’ve found that disposable tubes are preferable to steel tubes in many ways.

Why we stopped using steel tubes

While steel tubes have their supporters, they still lose to disposable tattoo tubes in the one issue that really matters; safety.

Steel tubes need to be cleaned thoroughly, and it’s not just client’s blood that’s the issue, the chemicals used in cleaning are also dangerous. To properly clean steel tubes after use is one of the dirtiest and dangerous jobs in the tattoo business

This constant maintenance is time-consuming, and add to that the weight of the steel tubes, which can cause hand fatigue and even lead to serious conditions such as carpal tunnel or tendonitis, and it’s no wonder people are switching to plastic disposable tubes.

Why we use disposable tattoo tubes

The biggest advantage of using disposable tattoo tubes is not having to worry about contamination. Health and Safety checks are a breeze, and the time saved by switching to disposable can add up to a surprising amount of man-hours at the end of the month. That’s time you could be doing more tattoos and earning more money.

Your clients also feel safer knowing that they are being tattooed with a brand new disposable tube, and there’s no chance it’s been used before on someone else. And as we all know, client satisfaction and word of mouth is everything in this business.

We only use and sell the best

Here at Tattoo Station, we have tested every disposable tattoo tube on the market that we could find. Many tubes lacked proper ink flow, felt bad to use, or would fall apart easily. After years of testing, we have found the best possible tubes, with the best ink flow and the sturdiest construction. They are simple, but they do the job better, making colours brighter, with amazing ink flow.
