If you are a booth holder for NTA Orlando and are tattooing....remember you will have inspection on either Thurs morn or Fri morn. ALL of the items on your checklist MUST be present. The DOH will also be there Saturday morning to make sure everyone has their ducks in that row.
Talking with their DOH (who are awesome, by the way) the following seem to be points that repeat themselves year after year:
*Licenses: some of the artists that hold annual licenses forget them at home. MUST HAVE, FOLKS, IN HAND.
*Tuberculocidal disinfectant: since a lot of people travel, it is understandable they cannot bring big liquid containers. But they need to proof at the time of the inspection. PLAN AHEAD. Sold in wipes for easier transport.
* Spore test result: the minority of tattoo artists use metal tubes during this event. However, sometimes they forget to bring the spore testing result. BRING 'EM
* We need to see the machines, grommets, etc. at the time of inspection. They often leave them in their rooms delaying the inspection process. ALL OF THE ITEMS, FOLKS, ALL
*Distilled/sterile water and alcohol...MUST HAVE. No 'I'll get it later' as with all of the above
*Proper bandaging material and medical tape. NO SARAN WRAP. Be the professional.
AND A REMINDER: Drinking, eating, and smoking (e-vapes too) is prohibited in the tattoo area/work stations. ... See MoreSee Less
