  1. Hello Everyone, I've been lurking around for awhile but have yet to post, but today I have a question perhaps you guys could help me with. While serving my apprenticeship I was told to only use plain paper towels because the pigment in the printed paper towels was carcinogenic and probably wasn't safe to use during the tattooing process. I trusted the guy I learned from and the shop always stocked plain paper towels, so it was never an issue... Until today. I came into the studio to find that we are now fully stocked with paper towels printed with various bright huge designs. Clearly, in my mind I still believe that this isn't the best thing, not to mention I think it looks tacky and unprofessional, however I am not armed with any other information to back up what I was taught about NOT using printed paper towels. If anyone is wondering, the guy I learned from isn't around anymore to back me up, or provide me with any other info. A few google searches later, I've come up empty handed. Just wondering if anyone here has any info, opinions or insights that might educate me further. Thanks In Advance! ~Candice
