Does this section say "kinda just learning" artist section?

bizzare1 wrote:OR do you have to be a prof.
That's kinda the point

From a mentor through an apprenticeship. Please do the world a favor and DO NOT learn how to tattoo from books and the internet.

There is no unfairness about it. You have to be a verified professional artist to access this section. And know the handshake 8)

Hi Guys,
If you use disposable Needles (is there any other kind?) disposable tips tubes bags, spray bottles, grommets, ink caps...need I go on?.
Why the hell would you need an autoclave...That is not to assume that I think there is any other appropriate method of sterilization, cause there isn't!. If there was, hospitals wouldn't use autoclaves...On that note if a doctor was using disposable scalpels, forceps etc...would he/she need an autoclave?. If you think I'm wrong let me know.

This has been covered here before many times.
PROVE that the disposable needles and tubes, which were manufactured in a third world country, are sterile.
I have posted pics here of "pre-sterilized" tubes that said "sterile when dot is blue" and the dot was grey. Did the 8 year old girl who packaged that tube wash her hands after she forraged through the dump for rats to eat the night before? Are you certain?
Cuz if she didn't, and the "sterilization process" they ALLEDGEDLY USED fails, then whatever was on that 8 year old girls hands, in that third world country, got shipped here and pounded into your client.
I think that is reason enough to have an autoclave.
Wouldn't you agree?

I have no issue with anyone using pre-made needles and tubes. I occasionally use pre-made needles, in a pinch, although I hate them and find them to be inferior in quality. BUT I REFUSE TO TRUST THAT THEY ARE STERILE. I sterilize them IN HOUSE before using them.

The entire side of my right middle finger is nothing but a thick slab of callous and scar tissue with no feeling.

I swear on my reputation and my daughter's life that I did not alter anything in this photo. All I did was took some pre-sterile tubes, placed them on the scanner, and saved them, uploaded them to my site (cuz it is a huge picture) and there it is for all the world to see.

looks blue to me... but then again my laptop screen is screwed, and i know that pastel blues are really greys and dark purples are really blue (messed up settings that i'm too lazy to fix)... but yes, i believe those are unsterile.

and i would like to just spy in the artist only threads. not to post, or contribute my worthless info, but to just look on and absorb any knowledge (or what appears to be knowledge) i can.

There was GREEN, BROWN and GREY. No blue at all. So, what does that mean, and how do we interpret the information at hand? The test strip says it is blue when sterile, and we have green brown and grey. There are no instructions for green, brown and grey. Is that like ""kinda sterile"? Or "really really sterile"? or "far from sterile"?
I'm not up on third world lingo.

grey= unsterile
brown= some dirt in the packaging
green= dysentery-causing contamination detected

that's my guess
