Well if your new to tattooing and working in a studio, surely you have a mentor who can answer these questions? If this isn't the case, I'm assuming you have bought a kit and are teaching yourself from home, for which reason I doubt you will get much advice on here to be honest... However I have never seen baby wipes used to clean a tattoo in my studio, we use a cleaning solution with kitchen roll.

I agree with Rambo; use kitchen roll and distilled water (it's so easy to make it youself too).....

I occasionally use baby wipes on the plastic-shite because they're the only thing that works properly on it..... For pig skin, distilled water or a cleaning solution and kitchen paper.....

A decent paper towel like bounty/plenty or look what other tattooists use, green soap, neat dettol, dettol/water I even know of tattooists that use boiled water and anti bacterial fairy liquid.
