COVID

Vaccination: I require clients to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test taken the day before our appointment date. Those who wish to send their vaccine record during the initial email conversation are welcome to, but I will also accept an informal showing (printout or on phone) on the day of the appointment for those who do not wish me to have a digital record of their medical information.

Risk factor: Please be aware that the contact shared by a tattoo artist and client is an unavoidable COVID risk factor in getting tattooed. I, along with all my coworkers, will be fully vaccinated as of July 2021, only tattoo 1-2 clients per day, and any surfaces you would contact in the shop are disinfected regularly. However, wearing a mask and keeping up good sanitation only reduces the risk of transmission, especially in close-contact, indoor settings such as our tattoo studio.

Being tattooed will also put some stress on your immune system during the healing process. Please consider what you will need for a safe and healthy recovery in the weeks that follow a tattoo, especially a large and intensive session.

Rescheduling: If you have agreed to an appointment: In the event that you experience COVID symptoms, case numbers rise, or if you simply reevaluate and no longer feel safe coming in, I will take absolutely no offense, or penalize you if you choose to reschedule to a later date. Your deposit will not expire.

 

COVID-19 shop protocol for clients

With all that being said, here is the protocol for our studio. We are currently unable to host events, including flash walk-in days, and will be operating on a strict appointment-only basis. If you have an appointment, please carefully read and adhere to the following:

  • You will be given a contactless consent form to fill out before entering the studio.

  • If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, have a cough, or feel sick please stay home and reschedule your tattoo appointment as soon as possible. I will extend the same courtesy if I experience symptoms.

  • Wear a mask over your nose and mouth and keep it on for the duration of your time at the shop, adjusting/touching it as little as possible. Bandanas and neck gaiters are not acceptable substitutes. If you do not have a mask, I will provide you with one.

  • Do not bring any guests to your appointment. If you have accessibility needs requiring another person please discuss with me in advance of your appointment - you may be scheduled for an appointment outside regular shop hours to maintain as much social distancing as possible.

  • Maintain 6 ft/2 m physical distance from others whenever possible inside the shop.

  • Upon entering the shop, immediately proceed to the sink and wash your hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.

  • Avoid wandering throughout the shop and touching surfaces unnecessarily.

  • Keep snacks, drinks, and personal belongings to a minimum, and only bring essentials. No eating or drinking will be permitted within the shop.

  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow or into a clean tissue which is immediately disposed of in the garbage and wash your hands.

  • There will be hand sanitizer available throughout the space for customer use.
