Can Staph infections come from chairs used for tattooing ?

my friend does tattoes at home in his recliner. He is very clean with all his instruments and cleans and disinfects everything before and after each tat. a few of the people have gotten staph infections and he thinks it could be from the chair they sit in. His dogs lay in it at times, but he covers it with a sheet when he does his tats. could this chair be causing the infections?

yes there is a distinct possibility .he need to use all the aseptic precautions while doing this procedure. it is an invasive procedure that warrants all the more attention. cleaning hands, using gloves, sterile instruments and surroundings would avoid infection. also if he has had many clients developing staph infection, he shud be seen by a dermatologist to rule out and treat carrier state of stap aureus
