In case you have tattoo customers who may actually carry potentially infectious diseases, these disinfectants are your first line of defense for the tattoo artist and the next customer. Look for tablets that are easy and convenient to prepare. Especially those that only require quick soak time, like about 5 minutes, and would be virucidal, fungicidal, bactericidal and tuberculocidal. These disinfectant tablets must be able to kill off dangerous bacteria and virus like herpes, HIV and fungus.
