FILTH - WHAT YOU DON'T SEE CAN HURT YOU - HEALTH COMPLIANCE…


MY TWIN (STEVE GODOY) AND I (ART GODOY) OFFER TATTOO MACHINE TUNING AND REPAIRING SERVICE. I RECENTLY HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO WORK ON THIS MACHINE… IF YOU ZOOM INTO THE PICTURES, YOU CAN SEE THE FILTH I HAD TO CONTEND WITH, THE NEGLIGENT TREATMENT THIS MACHINE RECEIVED FROM IT'S OWNER..
WE TELL CLIENTS, "IF THE MACHINE IS COVERED IN BIOHAZARD, VASELINE, BLOOD, INK… WE WILL NOT TOUCH IT." TO TAKE A CHANCE AND ENDANGER MY HEALTH AND THAT OF CLIENTS IS INEXCUSABLE. 

I FELT OBLIGATED TO TAKE THIS JOB BECAUSE IT'S AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT THE INDUSTRY STANDARD IS IN SOME PLACES. HEALTH COMPLIANCE TAKES A BACK SEAT TO MAKING MONEY, TO IMAGE, TO ATTITUDE, TO EGO… 

NOT ONLY IS THE FILTH ON THE MACHINE AN ISSUE, THE WEAR AND TEAR ON PARTS HAS AN AFFECT ON HOW THE MACHINE FUNCTIONS. CARBON STARTS ON THE UNDERSIDE OF THE CONTACT SCREW, CREATING A NATURAL INSULATOR PREVENTING THE CURRENT FROM TOUCHING THE FRONT SPRING. ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE PICTURE, YOU CAN SEE THE RUST AND THE BLACK HOLE STARTING TO WEAR ON THE FRONT SPRING.

THE IGNORANT ARTIST HAS TO THEN RAISE THE VOLTAGE TO MAKE THE CURRENT JUMP THROUGH THE CARBON CAUSING THE MACHINE TO HIT HARD… RESULTING IN INCONSISTENT MOVEMENT AND DAMAGING IMPACT ON THE CLIENT'S SKIN. A SIMPLE NAIL FILE CAN REMOVE CARBON BETWEEN TATTOOS.


BELOW IS THE REAR SPRING SADDLE CAP. TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT IT. WHAT'S GROWING ON IT?  RUST? MOLD? WHAT IS THAT FURRY DISGUSTING FILTH THAT' APPEARS ON IT? 


RUST? FUNGUS SPORES? HEP? WHO KNOWS WHAT IS ON THAT PART. WOULD YOU AS A POTENTIAL CLIENT WANT TO BE TATTOOED BY THE OWNER OF THIS MACHINE, IF YOU SAW THIS? 

PREVENTION IS EASY. PUT A BAG ON YOUR MACHINE. COVER EVERY TOUCHABLE SURFACE WITH A BARRIER FILM. BLOODY GLOVES CAN CONTAIN BACTERIA AND VIRUSES THAT LIVE IN DRIED BLOOD FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME AND ARE CAPABLE OF CAUSING DISEASE. 

IF YOU GO IN TO ANY SHOP AND DO NOT SEE ANY BAGS ON ARTISTS MACHINES, BAGS ON THEIR CLIP CORDS, BARRIER FILM ON THEIR POWER SUPPLIES, ONLY DISPOSABLE ITEMS ON THEIR COVERED WORK SURFACE… LEAVE.

HEALTH COMPLIANCE IS NUMBER ONE BECAUSE CLIENTS DESERVE IT. YOUR REPUTATION DESERVES IT. THE WHOLE INDUSTRY'S REPUTATION NEEDS IT.
