Tattooing Covid Style
Since tattooing requires us to be very close to each for a long period time, the safety protocols are a bit more involved than other businesses. This is the plan I have outlined for now but it may change as new information comes out. I appreciate your patience and cooperation. If we do this right, we can keep the good times rolling!
Scheduling – I will be working strictly by appointment only and consults will be done remotely, unless it is absolutely necessary to meet in person.
Travel solo – Please come alone as I can only allow one person in the studio at a time and there is no waiting area.
Gear – It is essential that masks must be worn at all times. If your mask is loose or damaged I will provide you with a new one. I will also be wearing eye protection and I will have safety glasses/face shields available for you if needed.
Before your appointment – If you have any symptoms (ie: fever, aches, cough, or just are feeling a bit “off”) or if you have been exposed to anyone who has symptoms or has tested positive in the past 14 days, please let me know as soon as possible so we can reschedule for a better time. I will be in touch the day before your appointment to ask some questions about symptoms and possible exposure.
When you arrive – Please wash your hands at the sink in the hallway or clean your hands with the hand sanitizer provided when you enter the studio. Just to be on the safe side, I will do a temperature scan with a touch-free thermometer. I reserve the right to refuse service and reschedule if there are any concerns.
Food and drink – please eat before you arrive. There will be no food allowed in the studio. Any drinks should be in closed containers.
For everyone's safety, I have to insist on following these guidelines closely. For example, I can't allow things like the “nose above the mask” or the “chin mask.” Don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns, there may be ways to modify the process if there are aspects that might not work for you.
Let's do our part to beat this virus down so we can keep it healthy and get on with our lives!
