When we opened, our goal was not only to offer tattooing but to also offer piercing. Hez took her apprenticeship studying the “European Body Piercing Method”.
No appointments are necessary as we encourage walk-ins but you’re more than welcome to make an appointment. Two of our artists are also trained in piercing so we almost always have someone available to assist you.
Just a bit of information on European Body Piercing, (EBP). It is a less painful, more sterile method of body piercing with less chance of infection after the pierce. The EBP method has only, in the last few years, been introduced to the North American market and goes beyond all health department requirements. Its focus is on the safety and security of the client and the piercing practitioner.
EPB utilizes a pre-sterilized, one-time-use cannula needle with a very sharp and tapered cutting edge. It is specially designed to create a very clean pierce with very little trauma to the skin tissue. The components of the needle also facilitates easy insertion of the jewellery with less pain for the client. All instruments and jewelry are individually packaged and sterilized. The 100% organic aftercare products are especially designed to resist infection and quickly regenerate skin tissue to its normal condition.
We personally continue to work with our local health board officials to ensure our industry continues to grow in a safe manner. Here at Alberta Ink you will be pierced under strict hygienic, clean and safe conditions. We will guide you through your experience making it very comfortable and continue the support throughout the healing stages of your piercing.
We use a Ritter M9D by Midmark autoclave. This allows us to guarantee the instruments and jewelry for each piercing will be individually sterilized for each client. This means the instruments are placed in individual pouches which are autoclaved (sterilized), thus eliminating any risk of cross contamination.
Every piercing is done using a brand new single-use disposable catheter needle. All needles are disposed of properly after the piercing and will never be re-used.
