When I got mine done the guy showed me the needles still in the original packaging before he started. I believe he said "Just so you know that we use brand new needles for every single tattoo for your safety"
I had assumed all artists do that just for peace of mind. They should not take offense to you asking.
If you don't ask, and you get Hep C or HIV, well you're going to regret that mistake every single day of your life. I know one guy who that happened to, it's pretty sad, he has Hep C, but he can't seem to get over how stupid it was of him to not make sure everything was safe.
