These gauze swabs are ideal for use in the tattoo industry as they serve multiple purposes within the studio. They make ideal dressings for new tattoos as they are padded, creating a barrier of protection from knocks and bumps. They are also breathable, ensuring that the skin below has sufficient air flow to enable proper healing processes to occur naturally. Gauze swabs are also lint free, meaning that they will not stick to the raw area of the skin or introduce particles of fluff or debris into the open wound. These types of gauze swabs can also be used to apply Vaseline and other preparation products to the area ready to be tattooed.
