Mastering the Craft: A Glimpse into the Equipment and Process at The Hangout Tattoo Studios

The Hangout Tattoo Studios in Hoi An, Vietnam, is not just another tattoo shop; it’s a haven where art meets precision, safety, and unparalleled craftsmanship. 

In this article, we’ll take you behind the scenes to explore the cutting-edge tools and meticulous processes that make The Hangout a standout studio in the world of tattoo artistry.

Advanced Tattooing Equipment at The Hangout

The Hangout prides itself on using industry-standard equipment, ensuring that every tattoo is a masterpiece. 

The studio employs machines and needles from respected brands like Bishop, Kwadron, Revolution, and WJX

This top-notch equipment plays a crucial role in the precision and quality of the tattoos. 

Additionally, the ink collection, featuring brands like World Famous Ink, Solid Ink, Eternal, and Dynamic Color Ink, is not only of high quality but also vegan-friendly, catering to the diverse needs of clients.

Stringent Sterilization Processes

At The Hangout, client health and safety are paramount. The studio follows a rigorous two-step sterilization process. 

The first step involves an ultrasonic cleaner that uses high-frequency waves and chemicals to cleanse the equipment. 

The second step employs a UV sterilization unit with a 99.99% germicidal rate. This advanced technology effectively eliminates various microorganisms, ensuring a sterile environment.

Commitment to Safety and Hygiene

The Hangout’s dedication to safety extends beyond sterilization. All tools are sterile and single-use, and every equipment piece is meticulously cleaned post-use. 

The staff adheres to strict hygiene protocols, including wearing surgical gloves and thoroughly cleaning the station after each client. 

This attention to detail, although time-consuming, underscores the studio’s commitment to client care.

Tattoo Aftercare: Ensuring the Best Results

Post-tattoo care is as crucial as the tattooing process itself. The Hangout partners with Dermalize Pro for ‘second skin’ aftercare, a product approved by the SUNGO certification company in London, UK. 

After thoroughly cleaning the tattoo, the studio applies Dermalize Pro, ensuring clients have no allergies to the product. 

They also provide a tattoo balm from The Shots, which offers sun protection and soothing ingredients to aid in healing. 

Clients are educated about the aftercare process and offered continued support for any future queries.
