Disposable Tattoo Artist Gloves

In the tattooing profession, artists combine creativity with precision to craft intricate designs on the skin. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), because tattoo artists are working with direct human contact, they must maintain their safety by wearing gloves throughout the entire process.

At SUNLINE Supply, we offer disposable tattoo artist gloves to meet this requirement.

Uses of Disposable Gloves for Tattooing

Within one day of work, tattoo artists see many clients. Germs can spread quickly from one person to another, making gloves necessary as a safety precaution. Wearing gloves can protect against:

  • Contamination: Tattoo artists work directly with an individual through skin-to-skin contact.
  • Infection: The art of tattooing pricks ink into a deep layer of skin, creating a wound that could become infected if exposed to bacteria.
  • Contact dermatitis: Contact dermatitis occurs when the skin has some contact with an irritating substance, like ink.
  • Injury: It may be evident that tattooing works with needles, so the artist needs protection from potential injury.

How Often Should Tattoo Artists Restock Gloves?

Tattoo artists should have a well-stocked inventory of gloves in preparation for tears or other contamination. Replacing gloves between customers is essential for sanitary practice. The number of gloves you need on hand depends on your studio’s size, how many artists you purchase gloves for and the number of people you tattoo.

At SUNLINE Supply, we can help with fast and dependable shipping to fit your studio’s needs. You can also order in bulk to ensure you have an adequate supply.

Best Types of Disposable Gloves for Tattoo Artists

Tattoo artists tend to turn toward black nitrile gloves as their leading choice. Nitrile is a synthetic rubber that is highly durable and stretches for agility and efficient replacement. Many tattoo artists prefer these black gloves to disguise ink stains for a look of cleanliness and professionalism.

SUNLINE Supply also offers black thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) gloves. TPE gloves are waterproof, liquid resistant and hygienic while providing a level of elasticity for a suitable fit. TPE is a latex-free and powder-free alternative for those with allergies or who prefer an eco-friendly, nontoxic glove.
