Rinse Cup: {E} Product Review

By Christina Diaz

We met Owner and Creator Dan McNab (Artist at The Tattoo Gallery in Huntington Beach, California) last year at the Evergreen Tattoo Invitational. He was going around booth by booth and providing a demo of his product and a free sample. Like a door-to-door salesman at his finest, with a smile on his face he showed Michele and I how it worked. We were in awe. A easy to use product that was good for the environment that could and would revolutionize the tattoo industry and make a tattooers job easier! Sold!

If you’re a tattooer then you MUST try this product! Read below to find out how Rinse Cup came to fruition and check out the video to see how Rinse Cup works!


Tell {E} how Rinse Cup was discovered? 

Creator Dan McNab: In the shop we all used paper towels the way the health department recommended, regardless of the severe waste and extra cost. That method sufficed us until one day I was in the shop on my day off in sandals, shorts and my three boys in tow,  I decided to take out the trash and it leaked all over my feet and there were drips from one end of the shop all the way to the trashcan around the corner from the shop. On that day I was determined to find a way to dispose of our rinse cups and ink caps that was safe for the environment, everyone that comes into contact with our contaminated liquid waste and a way that would eliminate the possibility of those damn leaky trash bags.


How long did it take you to develop the Rinse Cup technology?

Creator Dan McNab: The journey took around a year of research and development and then RinseCup the product was born not the business. It was never meant to be a business just a solution to a situation that had been a thorn in my side for years. It wasn’t till all the guys at the shop had been using it for a while and they advised me to sell it.  I believe they said, “I would be crazy not to provide this to every artist.” Nervous, to say the least, I pulled the trigger and went full speed ahead. Fast-forward one year and here we are, available at some of the best tattoo suppliers in America, Canada, the UK, South Africa, Australia and Spain. The response within our tattooing community has been phenomenal. I greatly appreciate the amazing support! I’m glad RinseCup does its job and makes all of our lives just a little bit easier and safer.”
