As a tattoo artist, you are responsible for the cleanliness and sanitation of your shop. The level of cleanliness used should ultimately put a surgical room to shame in order keep you and your clients safe before, during and after the tattoo. While a new tattoo artist might see some of these standards as being "too much", the reality is that you will be working with an open wound during the tattoo process and there are a lot of nasty infections that can get into the dermis, like:

Bullet Point Hepatitis A, B and C
Bullet Point Non-Tuberculous Mycobacterial (NTM) Bacterial Infection
Bullet Point Syphilis
Bullet Point Tetanus
Bullet Point Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA)
Bullet Point Leprosy
Bullet Point HIV

Not exactly the souvenir you want to bring home from a tattoo shop. In addition, every time you tattoo, you are risking personal exposure to any one of these infections. Following the guidelines for infection control and respecting the policies set in place by your shop (or setting policies if you have your own) can keep you, your coworkers, and your clients safe from infection.
