Suggested After Care


Not only does Leap of Faith Tattoo and Body Piercing set the standard for the Prescott Quad-City, we exceed every standard set for the Tattoo and Body Piercing industry.  Our instruments are sterilized on site in a Pelton Crane Autoclave.  We subscribe to a Biological Monitoring Service every month for our autoclave and have passed every test to date since we opened our doors in 2000.

All needles, inks and set up materials are single use items that are disposed of immediately following every procedure.  All our work surfaces are made of non-porous materials which are cleaned with Madicide or Cavicide (cold sterilant) after every procedure to ensure the safety of our clients and employees.
